Status when no answer to a video call

When I call someone for a video call & it rings for a while with no answer, after it hangs up it usually says, 'call to Joe Bloe, no answer' but sometimes it will say 'call to Joe Bloe, busy'. What does it mean when it says busy? Are they on another skype video call or on a regular phone call? For what reasons would it say busy instead of no answer?

Re: Status when no answer to a video call

The "busy" reply means the contact you called declined your call, possibly because they were on another call but possibly for any other reason.
