    Caller can't see me in Skype

    I was able to download the Skype app on my new Transformer just fine and all the calling features work except that the person I am calling can't see me in the video. I can see myself and I can see them. I have made sure that my front video camera is on and being that I can see myself I am assuming it is working. Any suggestions?

    Skype has a setting to enable video. Make sure it is enabled.

    From the main Skype screen, tap the menu key (4 lines on it)
    Settings. Checkbox on that screen.

    Also, when I Skype someone my video shuts off and if I tap the screen, then tap the video camera icon on the right, select Front

    I have tapped the video camera icon and selected Front and it didn't work so I selected back and it didn't work. Is there any a setting on the tablet related to camera or video that needs to be updated?

    Check that your skype settings are setup correctly, mainly that the video is enabled and that you allow sharing with them. Set to Anyone to be sure they can see it.

    Checked all of the settings and they were set correctly. One thing I did notice is that the person who is called sees a green screen instead of my video image and I know it is a problem on the transformer side because I called both a pc and an ipad. I think the video is working because I can see my image and the callers image on the transformer. Any other suggestions?

    Force Stop (Android Settings - Applications - Manage - All - Skype - Force Stop then Clear Data)

    Reboot

    Open skype (you will have to log in again) and make sure the settings in skype are setup correctly, then try again.

    I just read on the Skype support website that this is a common problem and updating from Android 3.1 to android 3.2 solves the problem. Can I do this an how?
