    I have never been able to get Skype to work properly with my EVO... I'm rooted running recharged and more freedom now... When I use stock Skype (now that my 4G should be supported) or back with the patched apk before the market version had support I cannot get skype video calling to work... While ringing it shows my video feed but when it gets answered it goes to showeing her picture (only one person I want to Skype with and she uses her macbook if that makes a difference??) Maybe since I'm using a ported sense 3.0 ROM the video feed doesnt work?

    Anyone know any fixes? Or if u are rooted and use Skype what rom does it work with for you? Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated

    try and wipe dalvik cach and cache first. then maybe try a stock rooted rom and see if you can get it to work on it. also maybe try other roms and see. i have not have heard of any issues with skype on rooted evos yet. i really do not use it so i can't help you to much.

    Works fine for me on MikG 2.5, and i think i used it on MIUI also. I make video calls over 3G to a desktop on wifi. No lag, clear audio/video, etc. I'm still using the hacked apk though, not the one from the market. The version i'm using kills the Skype process when you exit so it doesn't take up any resources when not in use (that was the description anyways).

    Yeah, I use the hacked version also. I tried to use the one from the market and I couldn't use the video call option.

    Thanks i may have to try mikg...

    BrianB what ROM did you run it on?

    Did anyone run this on a 3.0 ROM? Kinda thinking thats where the problem is...

    The hack i have is 2.0.46 I think... Is that the same that you guys have used?

    Mine doesnt say a version#, just says com-skype-raider-def-noautorun.apk. Let me know if you'd like to try it, I can host it for you to download if you can't find it here.

    takirb, do you happen to have a link to that hacked skype apk? Killing the process to save resources sounds like a 'plus' to me. :)

    I'm on cm7, but I'd like to know where to get the apk if it is for sense only... I switch often enough that it'll probably be useful eventually anyways ;)

    I've run kings alliance and evolved Rom just another sense 3.0 port and had the same bad results trying to get skype with video... Maybe this other hacked version will work if I can get the apk otherwise I dont think those 3.0 ports work with Skype

    I think it may've been on XDA that i found all the different versions at the time i downloaded mine, but i'm not finding that thread again (or it's deep within a meaningless babble of posts on there). Anywho, i just came across this new version that has a no autorun capability and supports portrait mode also. If you try it out, let us know how/if it works on the Evo?

    xda-developers - View Single Post - Skype 2.1.0.46 (v11) / fixes, extra features & more!

    I went ahead and uploaded the apk that i'm using to my dropbox here, if all else fails. I haven't had an issue with it yet, and i downloaded it quite a few ROMs ago (earlier in the year)
