So far Skype seems to be more stable.....
Anyone else noticed a difference ?
I can make a call but with video calling can only see myself and not the other person. Any ideas on how this can be changed? I can only seem to switch between the front and rear camara. Thanks
The other person needs to have answered using the video camera icon not the telephone icon. Maybe you've got so far without it crashing due to the fact a proper video connection wasn't made! Still seems to be a problem with the Nexus 4 too.
Another issue is the brightness on the hudl webcam - there doessn't appear too be a way to change it for Skype. When compared to the nexus camera it is very dark

Same problem here.
Skype crashes when a video call is either made from the Hudl or requested from a contact.
Sometimes it causes the whole device to reboot but usually causes Skype to restart. Sometimes it then stops further communications ( calls / messages) coming through and Skype needs to be forcefully stopped and restarted.
My workaround to this problem is to setup a voice call first, when it is fully established, then try to initiate video. (however, only tested on my Hudl)
Edit: Skype version - 220.127.116.11835, Android version - 4.2.2
Dear Skype, please fix this as it's a reet royal pain in the ...
tries to restart itself. Once it also turned the hurl off completely.
Is this an android problem or a hudl problem?
No idea why but for now its better than looking at the small screen on my mobile so I'm just putting up with it..hoping a hudl update in the future will sort it out.
Also...I can't connect at all to a voice call.
