Front camera for dell streak 5 (android 2.2) in video call


I am using dell streak 5 running android 2.2, with a back + front camera, During the video call, skype only uses the back camera (which is usesless in normal cases). Is there some option available to enable the front camera ??
Any sort of help will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

Unfortunately Skype has yet to fix their software issue to allow camera switching and claims that it's due to android 2.2.1 but the fact that fring video chat works fine with Dell Streak 5's front facing camera disproves their claim.  Hopefully Skype developers won't remain in denial
