Skype for the N8 - video cam?

Hello,

 

You can't video call with Skype on an N8 can you?

There is a forward facing video cam  

 

I can't find any options on that...

 

Thanks,

The N8 indeed has a secondary camera (front camera), but the Skype application is not foreseeing video calls. This is a shortcoming in the Skype application, not in the N8.

 

The only thing I can recommend you is to contact Skype to see whether they plan to have video calling enabled in future versions.

I don't think N8 supports as its got less processor speed then 1GHZ , and even if it was made then u can experence a poor video quality and hangups.

The processor speed shouldn't matter that much for allowing video calls while doing Skype calls. It might have to do with the amount of RAM in the device, but even that is doubtable.

 

Poor video quality: indeed the front camera is of poor quality.
