Re: xoom and skype video calling??

2011-04-24, 4:05 AM

dhuhtala,

I've heard a lot of good things about the "fring" video chat app in the Market, have you check that one out? I think it allows video calls between other clients such as MSN, Gtalk, SIP and Yahoo. There is no need to create another email account for this app, so maybe it might be what you are looking for (until video Skype is out at least)?

-Doc

hi, skype voice calling does not work for me, it only worked the first time after that Xoom crashes everytime I initiate a voice call, is this normal?

@dhuhtala

The backside of the Xoom is marked "with Google"... as a Xoom owner, it has helped my life to open a gmail account to smoothly use this device.

I agree, neither is my backside labeled "with Google" nor is my forehead... but having a gmail account to be user friendly is just a simple choice to ease the confusion between programs and technology.

Hi,

Hope all of you are doing well.

Can someone please advise me how to turn on video calling on skype, I was able to update my skype with latest version which should support video on skype but the problem is I cannot find the settings tab in skype or signout option.

Please advise.

Thank you

Yeah...that's easy...   NOT!

This assumes you already have a gmail account - which we don't.  I don't want to ask everyone I know to get a gmail account just so they can chat with me.  I already have 5 e-mail addresses - I don't need another and neither do they.  Google Talk/chat/whatever it is doesn't allow you to use it unless you register for gmail first! 

Google talk/chat/email - whatever it is (because it's VERY confusing and it is NOT easy) is about 10 years too late to be expecting everyone to have an account - very poor assumption!

I am rarely this frustrated getting things to work - I think Google needs to give their collective heads a shake...

Is there any video-chat application that works with PC chat programs like Live - that have been around a lot longer and people actually have accounts for?

I understand and appreciate what you are saying, all I am saying is that Google and Gmail and everything else that Google integrates into Gmail are continuing to be revolutionary.  I was hesitant to use Gmail originally several years ago, but I very happy I did and I have never looked back.      --- Dan

Finally Skype is working. Only tried once from a hotel. Is anyone having a volume problem. Not sure if it is a skype/xoom issue or a hotel bad connection issue.

Has anyone had any luck yet with xoom usa version to xoom usa version using skype in video mode?  I can video to my friends lap top with both voice and video but not his xoom.  The audo does not want to come through.  And even stranger, we got a video connection then his computer called my cell phone (bravo) when I had skype turned on on the phone also.   The video went through the xooms and the sound went though the phone.


 


I would be nice to have both video and voice xoom to xoom.   Has anyone been able to do that>


 


Thanks
