I don't get any video on my iPad2.  I have not engaged in a call as yet, but I don't see my video image when I open Skype and make a test call.  Shouldn't the video test as well?  You said you see your image, but I don't even get that.  Any suggestions?

The only time I even see a "button" for video is when I try to make a call, and then the video icon is grayed-out.  Is your button visible when you are on your screen showing all your contacts?

Thanks.  Sorry, I'm being pedantic here.  When you say "opened," do you mean that it only becomes activate-able when the video call is connected?

It is so great that Skype is caring for us - users - the ones they are getting money from - so very much that they are keen on answering our problems and trying to solve them.


I have tried to search several forums on this issue but never found a reply - not to mention a solution - from Skype. It turns out that everything looks quite OK, but the contact on the other side of the call can not see my camera picture - which I can. Then when I go to the bandwidth settings I see it says: "Not sending video". I think it should be working by switching it on - but there is no such possibility (!!!). Yes, the camera is working OK (I can see my pictures moving while the conversation). I have also tried to make videocalls with both a new and an old Skype account - same result. No, there is no problem on the receivers side, makes and receives video calls quite often - works with other people. Yes, most recent version of Skype, most recent version of drivers, directX, system, everything. New camera - works in other applications, in Skype setup, etc.

Sorry for fuming to myself and you - the readers of this post - but since there is no answer from Skype I have to voice my problems somehow.
