Has anyone had success making a video call? I've tried a few apps and there arn't many supported. The ones that have been installed don't seem to work with the front facing camera. .Anyone have a suggestions.
I did this installation last night and tried the Skype test call. The call is placed but just rings and is never answered. I logged off and logged in as my Skype name on my PC and the test call worked. Any ideas?
To test my Skype install, I called 1 (800) 555-8355 toll-free.
The voice quality was very good, but the mic sensitivity was a bit too high and cannot be adjusted in the app.
I didn't actually call another Skype contact, but I assume they would work just as well.
GrooVe IP is a better choice for PSTN calling for me because the mic and speaker gain settings are adjustable.
Returned my Vtab yesterday. To advertise Video Chat on the box and not have a supported app is a deal breaker for me. I talked to a few customer service reps at Vizio and they would not or could not recommend an app that supports video chat.
I had other issues as well that they could not help with; i.e. Why many popular apps such as Facebook were not supported, why moving apps to the SD card via the application manager were actually being moved to the internal 2GB of storage, or why there were no options to download directly to the SD card.
I installed Skype using foganime's method and it works fine on my vtab. I called my wife's Skype account on her Droid X2 and the call went through just fine. The clarity of the call wasn't superb, but I never use Skype much anyway.
Oovoo is now working. Was able to connect and video chat with my daughter no problem.
Only problem I'm having is that our camera seems to be zoomed in, so it's tough to get my entire head into the picture. Maybe one of the gurus on here can get that worked out. I didn't see any sort of a setting for it in the Oovoo app itself.
