    Skype just recently support SGS II front camera, gmail video I'm not sure.
    So make sure you have the latest skype version. I heard Tango also supports it.

    Only Android 2.3.3 and later supports front facing camera as I can remember.

    thanks for the input.

    i was not able to get gmail video chat working from the epic 4g to gmail on the pc running chrome or explorer 9. but for some reason i was able to get it to work from the phone to gmail (chrome) on osx 10.6.7.

    on a side note, the video and sound quality is ok but nowhere near as good as facetime.
