I note that this forum for dell streak has been pretty quiet recently, perhaps everybody is happy with the gadget now, which is good.
But I have a question here, as you know skype has recently updated the app to offer video calls for some specified devices and some smart guys have 'cracked' it to make it work for other devices. Has anybody here tried it in his streak and how is the outcome? Please share your experience.
Thanks.

It only works on Android 2.3, so your out of luck unless you are running Gingerstreak.

Because Fring doesn't have a PC client :)
I mean seriously.. Wtf? (Yahoo messenger is probably your best bet for now)

Fring is regurgitated fecal matter? Over a good connection it cant match msn from 5 years ago, skype is cross platform!


Maybe i just dont want to use fring?

To say why when you can fring is like saying why not get an iPhone!

Platform issues are yours, we speak to our 5 children and 5 grandchildren on multiple different makes and models with ZERO issues, actually skype is the older regurigitated fecal matter, which I use once and still have the stink on my hands to this day. Last time I checked it works on apple, Android and nokia (ovi). Plus from your tone, seems like new fangle things confuse you, so stay with skype that isn't working for you and I will just keep Fring that is working for me. Plus if you really need it to be on your PC, just use Yahoo chat like we did in the late 90's.......

If 3 fps entertains you by all means enjoy!

My tone? You interjected a different app into a specific question about an app, that is spamvertising!

Take your two pence and jog on

more people use skype, and it would be nice to video chat from phone to PC... regardless of which one is better.

Has anyone tested it on GingerStreak? I don't know how well the FFC API's are integrated in that kernel/build... it might work just fine.

Having trouble testing the cameras.. The back camera is used as default but there is an option to switch to the other cam. Cant skype anyone to test though :)
I just mean the app signs in and works, so I assume the cameras work too

Contact the developer on XDA.. Chances are he could create a simple fix for the apk :blink:

I don't see how it would make a difference. As far as I know the cameras haven't been messed with in any custom roms
