    Why doesn't the front face camera work with Skype? I can only see the other person I am video chatting with but they can't see me. Any help would be appreciated.

    My guess is because its not a fully supported device yet. I haven't tried Skype, but other things work, such as google talk with video. Is it enabled in settings in Skype?

    Skype does indeed work,most likely you need to enable the video under settings.

    I have the latest Skype version, and the front camera works with me. This means it is probably a setting that you might have changed within the app. You might have to enable video calling within settings.

    I enabled Video Calling in Skype settings but it doesn't work for me. I've tried it on Midnight ROM, MidnightS, Unsenseless. I've tried older versions for Skype but no such luck.

    I just installed it for Christmas on Harmonia and it worked flawlessly. It was the first time I used Skype on a phone. My daughter reported that the camera looked better than my laptop.

    Thank you. I might have to try this later. So it works with PC and Evo V? I'm trying to Video Chat with my son using his iTouch5 and my Evo V.

    Yes ..... my daughter was on her laptop and I was on my EVO V. It was actually kind of nice not having to carry a laptop around to show her everyone, and thier gifts.

    Skype, Tango and ooVoo all function perfectly fine for me.
