possible to video call from computer to mobile phone???

Does anyone know if it is possible to have a video call from your computer, to somebody elses mobile phone number if they support video calling, ie iphone???

 

Im sure if it was possible you'd have to buy a subscription of some sort, but I want to know if it is possible,before I do that.

 

Thanks!

This will only be possible if this mobile phone has Skype installed and you make a call to this Skype ID.

If Skype application is installed on this mobile phone, then you don’t need any subscription at all Video Skype-to-Skype calls are free.

You should not call the phone number but the Skype user ID of the owner of this mobile phone. Is this user in your contact list?

Yes contact is in my list. I deleted the phone # and tried just calling the sype user and it says that it can not connect.

Is the Skype contact you're trying to call showing as Online?  Like this:
