Re: Skype Video calling on Samsung Galaxy S2

Hi, I just purchased the (LG OPTIMUS 4G LTE) - Only currently available in S.Korea BUT the exact same phone as the Galaxy S II.

 

I also am having trouble with Skype. When making a call it sounds like the other person is a million miles away. When the video is on there is no option to turn up the volume. The other party aslo can not hear me well with either front or back camera on. 

 

How do we fix this? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am clueless with technology. 

 

Thanks

Re: Skype Video calling on Samsung Galaxy S2

Skype today released version 2.6 for Android devices.  I suggest you give it a try.

Re: Skype Video calling on Samsung Galaxy S2

I have been reading all of the comments concerning this issue with S2 and I've tried some of things suggested.  Every time I uninstall and reinstall from the Android Market the probelm gets worst.  First, I could not use video call.  I would get a message that said "Initializing video".  Now the app disconnects.  I am running OS 2.3.6.

Re: Skype Video calling on Samsung Galaxy S2

Hi all,

 

I am running 2.3.4 on my S2 with latest Android Skype version 2.7.0.907. Everything works perfectly. I know there are some other OS problems with 2.3.6. Hopefully everything will get better when Android 4.x gets released for S2 by the end of March.
