Hi all,

When using Skype, the front camera does not work on my Arnova 7b G2, conversation is fine and I can see the other person and the picture is good, when I click on camera a window pops up saying 'switch on back camera' and a window pops up where my face should be but it is blank, just black, I'm sure I read somewhere that you can download an older version of Skype which allows you to use the camera, but I can't find it, and I have searched everywhere, any help would be gratefully received Embarassed

Hi,

 

I am a novice on this tablet, I have been to xda and pasted Skype_280920_v16_black and the search returned 'not found' can I go to another site and just download it and is it safe? Also will this make my front camera work?

Hi houss,

As you can see, I tried everything to get the front camera to work on Skype but couldn't, so I gave up. I found there were a lot of problems with this tablet, I thought it would be great being an Archos, never had an Archos before but knew they were a respected company. Also this tablet runs Gingerbread which is quite old, now you have ICS and Jellybean out there. Another thing was I couldn't get Google Play, I know you can do something to the tablet so you can get it but I was told that being a novice I should wait a while before trying it, plus I had heard that it didn't always work properly.

So anyway, I saw another tablet being advertised and bought that.

 

My new tablet                                  Arnova 7b G2

OS ICS                                          Gingerbread

App store Google Play                    Appslib store

CPU 1.2 GHz                                 1 GHz)

RAM 1GB DDR3                            512 MB

Mini HDMI                                      None

Webcam that works with Skype      Doesn't work with Skype

 

And to round it off the new tablet was £10 cheaper with free delivery, I won't tell you the make of the tablet as this site is for Archos only and I respect that, but I just thought you should know, by the way I sold my Archos Arnova 7b G2 and haven't missed it for 1 second Laugh

You're welcome LaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaugh

Also I couldn't believer the lack of support for this tablet, the instructions were almost non existent, and as for support I couldn't find any, not on Archos or Arnova sites, I would have been lost without this site, so thank you Arctablet Cool

I know but that didn't help me or you Frown I could get conversation and see the other person, they just couldn't see me, maybe that was some kind of bonus for them Wink
