As of 4th August 2011 , Skype has released a new official update in the android market (ver - which supports the video calling option in Samsung galaxy s2 and it gives the user 3 options while doing a video call 1. Use front camera (2mp ) 2. Use back camera (8mp) 3. Don't show your video Happy Video calling using ur Samsung Galaxy S2 , no more hacked or unofficial skype software , go in for the official Skype software !!!!

Only downside is video using front facing camera is sent up-side-down (rotated 180°). Tested on my Galaxy S and Galaxy S2

Do you know how to fix the upside down video? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Skype on my Galaxy, but the screen is still upside down.

Did you try some of the phone's screen options (like auto rotate) as well as the Skype setting options to see if any difference?

Why does the video only work with the camera sideways.  My old 4G worked with it straight up and down so it was easier to hold without your hand getting in the way.
