    How do I do video calling using the front facing camera? Is there an app in the market for this. Does the person I call need a special app too? Thanks

    Qik doesn't work for me. The widespread idea now is that droid3 users must wait for a video chat app. Tango is the only one that is possible to use but sucks really bad.

    Thanks for the reply. Qik does not work for me either and tango has way too much interference in the sound. If there is an app that works please keep me updated!

    I downloaded skype and went to settings to turn on the front camera but when I click on the contact that I want to video call with there is no option for the camera. Does the outher person need skype to. They have an iphone 4

    I believe they do need Skype to make it work.

    They need Skype too unless you both on tango or another program.

    On the downloaded Skype, the blue icon one, go to settings and enable video calling. It's off by default

    Fring worked for me between my Droid 3 and Droid 2. My droid 3 used front facing, with the ability to use the back camera, but with the droid 2 all I saw was their back camera.
    still, it works tho'...

    I installed this on both my wife's Droid 3 and my Droid 3. This hacked version of Skype (it is the one with the blue background icon; the pre-installed version has a white background).

    The front-facing camera is automatically invoked for a video call. The video was pretty good; we tested with both on wifi and on 3G, Fairly smooth on wifi with some chop encountered when both were on 3G. Be forewarned, with video, you use up battery life quickly. USB charge connection seems to keep you even and AC charge will actually charge when using this version of Skype.
