    Can't seem to get the video to work. When I call my gf on her ipad 2 I can see her but she can't see me. We can both hear ok. When I try turning on front facing video it comes up on her screen recieving video then nothing happens and on my sgs2 it goes back to video off.

    Anyone know if it can be fixed?

    Video works great on Skype with the sgs2 but I have never tested it with an iPad on the other end.

    Must be the iPad 2 side of things, because SGS2 to other Android devices works great (tried calling SGS2, HTC Desire HD and Galaxy Nexus with my SGS2 and worked fine).

    Unfortunately, I don't have an iPad 2 to help you :(

    It also works fine when calling a PC.

    Make sure both the Skype apps are the latest version, having an old version at the other end stopped the video working once.
