Otherwise I might send the pad back and that would suck !
Similar problem the HP touchpad has running skype.
Download Skype version 18.104.22.168. It works
You can download it from www.freewarelovers.com/android
Uninstall the current version
Download 22.214.171.124 version
Install 126.96.36.199 version which can now be found in your Downloads on the A1
Sign in to skype
Select profile and select Advanced settings
Check Force-enable video-calling. Let Skype restart.
Check setFPS and Use valid preview surface.
Both cameras should work.
Thanks for the requests - we'll see what we can do about enabling video on the A1. We've already enabled the K1, so have some experience of working with Lenovo.
