I have observed that in some cases when switching the video call from rear to front cam,and then back and coming back to front cam spoils the image quality and there is a lot of red color in the video. The only option is to stop the call and restart it.
I hope this is something people use regularly and needs to be fixed.
Thank you very much for your feedback. I will pass the issue mentioned to the product team and they will look into it.
Also, please be aware that this is a beta release and all the features might not yet work properly. Your patience is much appreciated.
since I just begun to use Skype on my Nokia Lumia 800, may I please know whether it is possible to switch between the front and rear cameras during a Skype video call on this Windows Phone?
Thank you in advance for your advice how to switch between the front and rear cameras.
I miss not being able to switch from my Nokia Lumia 920's Front-facing Camera (2.1 MP) to the Rear Main Camera (7.9 MP) for giving tours or giving instructions. It's helpful to see what your recipient is seeing. I hope Microsoft incorporates this functionality! My previous Lumia 900 was able to do this!
The 2.4 update is now out! Read about it here: http://community.skype.com/t5/Windows-Phone/Skype-
Thanks for your patience
