Skype/Flash on TMV

11 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

As complete new stranger to Android phones, I am using a T Mobile Vivacity and have downloaded and installed Skype.

Despite Skype website saying Android version now supported video, on my Vivacity it seems video is not supported despite it having a front facing camera.

Can this really be true, if so what is point of fitting front facing camera to the phone ?

Is their any fix/solution (or likely to be) ?

Have searched web but cannot find any help.

Sorry if this seems dumb question but am suprised a latest phone with 2.3 did not fully support Skype out of the box.

It also seems that flash support for iPlayer is not present.

If I try to install Flash from Adobe site , it says device not supported.

Why would new phone with Android 2.3 not support flash and iPlayer ?

Have managed messy fix by using Skyfire browser with video upgrade but not really a nice solution.

Anyone know how to get correct flash support onto this phone.

I did seem to manage to download and install Flash 10.3 from a website but iPlayer still says no flash player installed despite it showing present in apps list.

Thanks for any help/advice to noobie.

Try downloading/installing Google+ and then make/join a hangout, I think that's more what it was designed for but you're right, Skype should really work with it, just blame them, maybe they're only supporting HTC, Samsung, etc

You may need to find a 3G activated version as this one may only work over WiFi. Do post your findings here.

Thanks to both for trying to help.

I am using wifi anyway.

I have downloaded and installed manually flash 10.2 and 10.3 from web site given.

They each showed installed, I tested from Adobe web site and it said flash 10.3 installed on my device so seems install was ok but still iPlayer tells me I need flash.

Have tried rebooting and removing/replacing battery, still the same.

Using the iPlayer app sugested seemed to install OK but when I try to play something I just get a black screen where picture should be.

Too bad, this seemed a nice phone for price but strange it does not seem to support popular uk apps like iPlayer and Skype correctly.

Guess I will give up and return for credit.

thanks for all help

Alan

There is no reason to use skype unless its on the 3 network (or its free)

Otherwise might as well just use sip or Google talk.

i PLayer Flashplayer

It has taken me a little while to get the right combination of flashplayer and i Player, but it does work quite well on the home wifi, with my OSFII. I suspect results will depend on how close you are to a reliable connection as it cuts out if I wander to far from the router. I used adobe 10.2.157.340 and the iplayer download from the rapidshare link. I am still struggling to get webcams to play. It tells me I need to install adobe flash; it must mean a version which is compatible. Oh well. I wish there was a little more cooperation between these folks. It's only rocket science.
