skype doesnt seem to allow vid calling?
what apps can i use to vid chat with people using the FFC??
Fring works well for video calling.

It is insane that Google Video Chat isn't included. This is good for Fring, but I don't know anyone that uses Fring.
Also Tango I believe works as well.
Haven't gotten mine yet. Will we be able to video chat with Apple devices at some point? My son has an Itouch and is excited about video chat.
Something tells me the answer is no.
1st time poster, long time lurker. I've enjoyed this knowledgeable community for some time and envy the knowledge some of you possess. I am far from technical but am doing my best to learn.
I recently received my D3 and much to my disappointment, I have been unable to use the FFC for video chat. This source specifically states that 2.3.4 was supposed to bring video chat. I've tried using video chat on Gtalk 1.3 and Skype and had no luck. Skype does not support the D3 yet as it only supports a handful of phones. Gtalk 1.3 (aka Talk in your app drawer) was supposed to be the version that allowed video chat. Based on reading a few discussions in other forums, it appears it's not activated or something quirky is taking place.
Hopefully it will be resolved soon but this version of OS was supposed to allow video chat and the phone came loaded with the proper version of Gtalk. I have not tried the other apps available in the market. One would think that Gtalk would be the better app for video chat. Here's hoping we get to see that sooner rather then later.
once Skype enables video chat on the D3 then if your son got Skype and installed it on his iTouch you guys could video chat, but I highly doubt Apple would ever open up FaceTime to connect with other programs. Skype would be the way to go once Skype allows/updates the app to work on the D3 for video calling
yes I don't understand Talk not working either but once talk and Skype updates to work on the D3 i'll be happy with the FFC
Over on XDA Developers, there's a version of Skype that has been modified to allow video chat for most phones.
SkyNet Liberty AOSP
any chance you can link to the app?
just viewed the info on Tango, and it says both parties need the app.
Skype 2 Available For Other Devices! | xda-developers
Downloading it now, not sure if it works or not for D3.
Works, Kinda :-/ ...
I can see the video from the person i am talking but the skype client on the phone can't get the video from the phone, front or back. You just see a black screen.
I'm experiencing the same problem.
So moving on from Skype, since we all have the same software and hardware until root access arrives...
Our options left are Tango, Oovoo, and Qik? (which mysteriously disappeared in the past day out of the market)
Edit: Scratch that, just Tango and Fring
my friends kids love to watch themselves dance around on my phone now..
i also thought i had a booger in my nose at work one day, and used the front facing cam to find out i in fact did. a giant one.
Hilarious. I opened the FFC for the first time in my ofice today and immediately thought how good this would be for identifying "bats in the cave."
Regarding the patched skype app, the dev is looking at logs to help fix issues
I bet it just needs a little tweaking to get it to work
