using the latest version of skype im +video, but camera did not function at video calls (very annoying and embarrassing when answering call from ipad), used internet connection through router at home. Had no problems with earlier version. What shall I do? Tried both tablet and android phone without success. Received only message -you must turn on your video function to be able to be seen- no such button available, I could see the person I was talking to, but could not send any pictures myself. Help.
