    We were able to Skyp link with our kids in Colorado, but the video never appeared...only the audio...?

    The camera works fine, so it's not that part...

    Is there something you need to do in the Skyp application to activate the picture at each end?

    THANKS!

    I have been trying many versions off Skype with no success. The only video chatting app i got to work was Fring and Qik. Dont know if this will help.

    I have also been trying to use Skype on my new tablet. Having a camera front and back I thought it should all work nicely. When I down loaded Skype, I realized it didn't seem to cater for video Skyping. Is there any other android app that I can use where video works, and are Skype going to sort this shortly.
