When I call someone, they can't see the video of me, even though I can see it in my local window. The option to display video on my phone says "no video", but when I try and select "front camera" or "rear camera", the options are not available. Note that the person I'm calling says they can see me for just a second, but then no more. Other applications can use the front and rear cameras with no problems.
This happens with Skype 3.5.117, with the iPhone 4, with iOS 4.2.10, carrier=Verizon 10.2.
This might have started happening after I upgraded to the most recent version of Skype, but I'm not exactly sure about that.
Can you please do the following:
1) What Skype version and operating system is the other side using?
2) Can you create a new account, and try to make a video call to the same person.
Please reply back here with the results.
I am sorry for the inconvenience.
Hmmm, the problem is specific to one person I'm calling. They are using an ASUS Skype Touch Videophone (desktop all-in-one unit)
Let me check on their version, and see whether I can upgrade Skype on their end.
The ASUS Skype Touch Videophone just says "Firmware V126.96.36.199.5" which I don't think is a Skype version. Is there anyway to tell what version of the Skype client is being used by the person you're calling?

Well, if I revert the revision of Skype on my iPhone back down to 3.0.1, then it works again with the ASUS Skype Touch Videophone (ie., the person I calling can once again see me)
FYI, for anyone else who's reading this, here's the procedured I used to go to an older version of Skype on the iPhone when sync'ing with a Mac using iTunes:
