Group Video Calling between iMac, iPad2, iPhone4S

When I start a group video call from my iMac to an iPhone4S and an iPad2, only the iMac broadcasts video.  The iPad2 and the iPhone 4S only broadcast audio.

 

If I call the iPad2 from my iMac, both have video.

 

If I call the iPhone 4S from my iMac, both have video.

 

If I call the iPhone 4S from the iPad2, both have video(same if I call the iPhone 4S from the iPad2).

 

But When I start a group video call from my iMac to an iPhone4S and an iPad2, only the iMac broadcasts video.  The iPad2 and the iPhone 4S only broadcast audio.  

Is it possible to have all 3 devices broadcast video in a group video chat?

Hi, 

 

Currently it is not possible to participate in a group video call with iPad or iPhone or iPod Touch. 

 

The behaviour you are seeing during the group call is expected.

Re: Group Video Calling between iMac, iPad2, iPhone4S

Hi, how do I from my iphone 4 initiate or even join a call from a group saved in my contact list on my desktop pc?
First of all the iPhone contact list doesn't have the group contact saved, I have to go on history to see the previous conference call made and when I want to call there are only two options: participants (that lists those in the group) and leave (which make you leave the conference) but NO option to join a conference or initiate the conference??

Please could you help?
