Green screen with video call

I had an update on my android tablet version of Skype today. Prior to update I had no problems making video calls. Now the other user can hear me but only sees a green screen. I have made sure that I am on the correct camera and all. On my tablet I am seeing the view from my camera just fine, but the other end of my call does not.

 

Help.

Re: Green screen with video call

What tablet device do you have and which operating system version is it running?

Re: Green screen with video call

There should be a firmware upgrade to Android 2.3 available for your Galaxy Tablet. This should fix the issue for you.

Re: Green screen with video call

I am waiting for this answer too.  We had two toshiba thrive tablets working perfectly. Now the person you are skyping only sees a green screen.  Trying to look up firmware updates, but have had no luck so far.  This is very frustrating.

Re: Green screen with video call

Same exact problem here.  I can see the video on my Toshiba Thrive of the person I am calling but the person I am calling can only see a green screen.  I have Skype v 2.6.0.75 on the Thrive and Skype v 5.7 beta on the PC that is being used to communicate with the Thrive.  HELP!!!

Please fix this issue promptly. I was able to skype with my boyfriend in Afghanistan until you pushed the update to his tablet. You guys are killing us!

Re: Green screen with video call

I just installed Yahoo Messenger with the video chat plugin on my Thrive.  I was up and video chatting in a matter of minutes.  Luckily most of the folks I talk to via video chat also have Yahoo accounts.  Works great!
