Yes! Thank you Johncramer (and JetRocket 11 in an earlier post)! I just checked this out and it does indeed work (using a faux Galaxy S3)! After doing as John instructs, I can then switch to the backside phone (where the speaker is, anyway) and provide quite a high-res camera image! Brilliant!
(don't know what "SoulFed22's" problem is, although Skype really SHOULD get on top of this--shouldn't be difficult to fix this obvious bug!)
Same on Samsung Galaxy S II - this started happening recently, either after a skype app update or the recent Sprint JellyBean push, I'm not sure which. But basically Skype is unusable for what we need (grandparents video chatting with grandkids) because there is no way to hear the far end (I never have a headset handy). Fix this please.
This problem applies to the Galaxy S4 as well. While using video and talking, there is no option to switch the received audio to the speaker phone. So, no one can see the video and hear what is said properly at the same time.
