    This guy has had the Bionic for a week and he hasn't been able to get Skype videochat to work with the Bionic.

    Mark W. Smith: Droid Bionic smartphone from Verizon finally lands — and it's a winner | Detroit Free Press | freep.com asked bworley at android-central (he had a 1000 post page with videos from youtube of his bionic that he took down last night) and he said that google videochat works but that he had not tried Skype.

    Looks like we'll have to download the hacked version.

    Its Google talk also a video chat app. I think I read that someone used google talk and it worked great. I've also though that skype software is crap. They probably have to update it to make it compatible.

    That's Skype's issue, not the Bionic's. They'll need to push out an update.

    You have to enable video in Skype settings, it is only on by default for a small list of phones.

    Searching the android market with my 2.3.4 D1, I did not find google talk as an app. Or is it the same as google voice?

    Do you know if that setting is only on the hacked version or also the one from the market?

    yes it is, but you need at minimum Gingerbread version 2.3.4 for the video part of Google Talk to work.

    I need to make my 70 yo dad an account in Greece and google verification requires a phone number. When I give them my phone number (the one linked to my gmail that's linked to my cell phone, the verification is messed up.

    Yeah, doesn't work on my Bionic. You can switch between the front and back cameras, but nothing. I do see the other person though. All anyone sees of me is a black box.
