Skype video call on Android 2.1/BACKflip

2010-11-11, 21:39 PM

Hi, I was able to upgrade my backflip to Android 2.1 and installed Skype. I'm able to make voice calls over Skype. But there seems to be no way to do vido. Does anybody know how and if that can work? Thanks.

I know for a fact Fring works with skype and on the backflip.... during setup it will tell you no go, but just change the settings; it works because we have the "option" for a "front-facing" camera.

Heh, funny because last night I was experimenting with video calling.. here's what I found out.

1. Skype does NOT do any type of video calling.

2. I downloaded Fring which is a nice app, but discovered recently that Skype has denied Fring the ability to communicate with Skype users through video.  So no Fring to Skype calling period.

3. Fring also does not let you video call with any type of IM user.. atleast the ones I tried, which was MSN and Yahoo!.

4. Fring video calling to mobile truely amazed me, first I tried it with me calling my girlfriends Ipod Touch.. worked flawlessly.. I was really impressed.  I was connected through WiFi by the way.

So in short I would for sure download Fring if I was you, it is truely an amazing app and can see more potential as time passes.

Since the 2.1 update, the Tango app is another video calling app avail to the backflip. It automatically syncs contacts that have the app. Android and Iphone users too.
