I tried versions 11-13 of that app, plus the alternative suggested for those with problems, none of them would work. Both cameras are recognized in the settings, but it won't use them. v11 had a "force camera" option but that just crashes the app. This is on a stock Vivacity.

Skype video calling function doesn't work on devices with arm v6 processors.

It's not just Skype, I tried every video calling app I could find, stock and modded, and as far as I can tell there's nothing that is able to use the front camera.

Yet, I hope.

Hmm, I just tried Tango, and it worked! It used the front camera and it didn't crash. I'll try it a couple more time, and hopefully it will work just as fine.

Tango works fine for me too. My image is upside down when I'm recording messages and none of the corrective codes do anything. Not sure if I'm doing the right thing though :-(

Just before you mentioned that I was going to question why did they bother with the expense of front facing cameras if nobody can use them, now you have proved it works there is no reason why Skype cant implement it. The Skype app is getting really big, and that might be because they are forced to support so many variants of android phones, maybe its time they got specific. Microsoft own them now so they will probably sit back and drink coffee.

Maybe if everyone here sends off a email to the developers of skype they might support it. I have been looking for a support email but cant find one.

Yahoo Messenger can also use both cameras, although the front camera is upside-down as in Tango.

I'm upside down, but the other side seems to see me fine, so great, thanks B)
