Re: Block my video image

If you are seeing the Video message button instead of the Video call button, then most likely the contact you are trying to call is not Online on Skype. For Online contacts the status icon next to their name must be solid green with a white checkmark inside.


In the very latest Skype version the Video call button is no longer replaced with Video message button for Offline contacts, but is again displayed as greyed out icon.
