Need skype video call

Every operating system whether be apple or android supports skype video or net video chat..
then why should we 'belle' lovers be kept away of it??
Please, Nokia, just tell us- should we hope positively or stop the temptation of getting.video-chat support in future???

Re: Need skype video call

 

 This problem has been raised many times before. The answer is that Skype is a third party application, so it's up to Skype developers to implement Video calling on their app. There's nothing Nokia can do about it.

 @ algerian

 

 The N900 runs on the Meamo operating system whereas the N8 is running on Symbian. So, it's upto to the Skype developers if they want to implement video calling within their app for Symbian.

Re: Need skype video call

New nokias don't have front facing cam anyway (it's actually really sad. You can say whatever you want, but I used plain video calling a lot).

Re: Need skype video call

@ray That problem that I raised so many times must be addressed seriously and on priority basis. Skype is a great and most sought after application...Nokia must request 'skype' to oblige 'belle' users by providing full functionality.

Re: Need skype video call

 

 As I've said before, It's up to the developers of Skype to introduce video calling. You're efforts would be better placed over on the Skype support pages.

Re: Need skype video call

I would try my best to explore the skype site(cited avove) and express my grievance there also and ask others also to do the same especially in the condition when our own cell manufacturer 'NOKIA' is not showing interest for symbian-users.
I again request nokia to confirm whether 'Belle' is compatible enough to support video-chat via internet ? Only then it would be proper for us to put any request on skype siite!

Re: Need skype video call

I think back-cammera can be used to for vide-calling But U would need to constantly shuffle Ur Phone Front-back-front.

Re: Need skype video call

I have not received any reply to my post enquiring about the compatibility of 'belle' for online video chat on net...so, I can say that so far no compatible app available...and since the current software has no support for flash 10 so it creates more problems.
May b in future upgrade we get full flash.

Re: Need skype video call

My opinion: Nokia should make arrangements with Skype on Normal support Symbian and support video calls. Our requests are nothing to Skype. Very annoyed that smartphones Apple and Android have a normal Skype client, with support for video-communication, and Symbian has not. Maybe I made a mistake by selecting the products of Nokia?

Re: Need skype video call

Will soon go on sale delightful Nokia 808, not ashamed that it will work a current client of Skype, defective and not ergonomic and not having video calls?? You have used Skype for the iPhone? YOU will not notice a huge difference with Skype for Belle?

Re: Need skype video call

@vitoroff You are absolutely right . I saw that skype site is full of video-call requests including one from my side also....but what if nokia itself is not striving for whatsoever reasons known to them only.
Infact 'belle' does not support flash 10 and video-chat is not possible in anyway via any application and fring is not available for 'belle'...can you imagine how backward we feel with nokia in this era of Internet.
No surprise if other brands have overtaken them.
