Done that & its still green, I was on that version because Bluetooth worked & it went green as soon as we got ics on the HTC sensation, if there is a chip fix why has it not been issued, something sounds dodgy

SKYPE told us the TRUE, that within new Qualcomm drivers green video problem will be solved for Skype...




Several users confirmed that after updating of drivers Skype is working correctly.


Now it is also up to HTC to make driver update for us ...

So that means if i have rooted android i can install this driver and everything work good. Or i must wait when HTC offer us new diver uodate? Basicly i would like to know what i can do to fix this problem faster. Thank you.

Same problem here with my HTC sensation XE with beats audio

Upgraded to Android version 4 and outgoing video calls are green. Same for front and back camera

Skype and HTC are absolute knobheads knowing the problem exists and not fixing it or  admitting to it.

I want a normal solution

I can't risk my phone by rooting it or installing other software :/

Here's my reply from HTC: 09/05/12


Thank you for contacting HTC regarding your HTC Sensation. My name is Mark and I am a Technical Support Agent for the HTC Written Team. I’m sorry to hear that you are experiencing difficulties with using the Skype app after the recent ICS update. The reason for this issue is that Skype have not yet released an update to there app to make it fully compatible with Android 4 ICS. I am confident that this issue will be resolved in the near future and I would like to apologies for any inconvenience.
