Re: Group Video Chat

I have a Premium account and I am able to set up the group video session just fine EXCEPT for 1 person who has Windows 8.  I can do one on one video with her just fine, but when I add anyone else to the group, she immediately goes to audio only.  I have even tried to release her connection and add her back to the group but nothing changes.  She still only connects with audio.  The last time the group met 4/21/2013 I had to do a separate connection with her on my iPad and physically hold the iPad up to the computer camera.  (Very awkward and annoying).  Do I need to have her install an older version of Skype?  She does not have the option of joining the group with a different computer or OS.

I would appreciate any help as she is my sister and I am organizing a Skype for her 50th birhday with 7 sisters and brothers on 5/5/13.  Thanks!

Re: Group Video Chat

Group Video calling is not yet available on Skype for Windows 8. Your sister can install the desktop version using this msi-installer for the latest Skype 6.3.0.105 version:

Re: Group Video Chat

I am having a problem with group chat video.  When I call my contacts individually I can see everyone, but when I do a group chat I can only see one person.  I am trying to chat with 3 other people.

 

Can someone help me with this?

Re: Group Video Chat - still not working - why not?

Group video chat not working for my premium account - why not? Is windows 8 to blame or the skype proposition?
