Skype with video
« on: September 11, 2011, 01:48:53 PM »

With a user facing video camera why can't I use video Skype? This is an important consideration and will probably require a return if it can't be solved.

Just finished chatting with x10 tech support. It's a known issue that the AirPad camera and Skype are not compatible; i.e., it doesn't work. At first, he said there was an issue with the rear facing camera, but fianlly admitted that the camera and Skype don't work together. I'm going to try other apps; e.g., AIM, Yahoo, MSIM, GoogleTalk, ooVoo, etc. Right now, the only thing I can get with Skype is texting. Also, there's a loud buzzing on my end (PC), but my granddaughter can hear me OK. I believe there are a lot of updates that the AirPad will have to do. Rush to market sound familiar?

My Skype works fine. Video and all. The only problem is that I need to wear headphones on the tablet because the speaker and microphone are too close together and they cause an echo.

First comment.  There are now atleast three different X-10 AirPads and one should not expect all to work the same.

You need to state if you have the  original X-10 7" Air pad or the 7 P  Air Pad or the 10" one or whatever the complete correct names are.

Also search will turn up post here stating that one issue with AP video is the reversed image.

I just received the 7p with ICS under the impression that it had full Skype capability. No 'good' video, but audio and texting work fine. Video to me look okay. Video on the other end on a laptop has vertical red bars. If I could post an image...

Skype works abosolutely fine on my Airpad XL ICS- -- Skype - options - tick video on -
Start call - click on camera with a hash through it (to turn video from off to on) their is an option for the Back Camera - choose it
(yes it's wierd choosing back for the front camera - guess it depends on your perspective)

Worked great - called my other computer - video both ways and sound was crystal clear.
