Ideapad A1 meets reqs. Why no video?

The Lenovo Ideapad A1 appears to meet all of the stated requirements -- minimum version, NEON, etc.  Why doesn't video work?

PLEASE ADD my name to the list of people who are unhappy that Skype video does not work on the Lenovo A1.

Skype, please fix this. I would really like my A1 to work with your service. If google can make it work shouldn't you be able to?

Re: Ideapad A1 meets reqs. Why no video?

Someone said on the Lenovo forums that it could work with Skype 3.5, where can we get it? It's a shame that Skype video isn't working on the Lenovo A1 even if it says that the video mode is supported.

 

Would be nice to hear something from the Skype team!

Did you enable video calling in the settings as explained here:

Your URL is invalid, but I checked the settings and, aye, Claudius, video is enabled.

 

Today's app update did nothing to fix the problem, either.

Please try clearing Skype data from Android Settings->Apps->Skype->Clear data. Then re-start your device and try videocalling again.

There are NEWS about this issue!

 

I cleaned the cache/app data (As suggested) after I installed Skype 2.6.x and video chatting / file sending will work afterwards! Skype itself runs a bit buggy but after 1-2 test calls it finally started to work.

 

The only problem which remains is the following:

The video is upside down (Vertical flipped), the video from the PC is not bugged. So Skype video calls work finally, but the other person will see you upside down :tongue:

 

Is there any solution how to fix this issue? Is it so difficult for the Skype developers to add a option to "flip" the video as a kind of "mirror" function <.<? (The rear camera seems to work by the way, so the flip bug appears only with the important front camera)
