When most of my contact are on-line the green indicator light will not light up. I questioned this when I only had 2 contacts on-line over a month long period. I would make a phone call via skype and they insured me they were on-line but their green light was not lit. I downloaded the new application today and now you cannot make a video call if the light is not lit up so I can never make a video call now with getting this green light problem fixed.
If you think a contact is online but showing offline, you can still try to make a video call to them with the new version, even though the Video Call button won't function.
Click on the contact you want to call. Then right click, and on the menu that comes up click on Video Call. That will try the call regardless of the contact showing online or offlne.
