I don't know many people with Skype and a web-cam so I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but running the Skype app gives no indication or mention of the web-cam. Has anyone been able to use it successfully?

I see now why the solution to this problem involves installing an older version of the Skype .apk file (IIRC it's 2.0.0.47) for rear-facing cameras, when in fact the problem with the Arnova tab is that its front facing camera won't work.

When they say' rear-facing' they probably mean 'single-camera', since the vast majority of devices with one camera will be phones with a rear-facing camera, and I guess that this is why this works with this tablet's single front-facing camera.

 

p.s. This works with both 7 and 10 G2s - I've installed it on both, but headphones seem to be compulsory as all I heard initially via the speakers was a loud burst of sound which cut off straightaway. Presumably some kind of feedback prevention?

this is caused by skype to avoid endless echo ping-pong
