    Hello Friend,


    You'll require to enable camera in your android device to be used as a webcam for working with Skype videp calls.




    Firstly install an app called "IP Webcam" in your device.After that configure the settings which include the login and password, resolution, FPS, image quality, and TCP port no which is 8080 by default and works nicely.


    You'll need to install a webcam plugin to use your android camera with Skype.Download webcam plugin and install it on your device.Once it gets installed,Plugin will ask you to provide IP Address, port number, username and password you have set up in IP webcam.


    Now you can use your android device with skype


    Hope It Helps!


    Thanks and visit again

    Due to Android restrictions,devices running android 2.2 will only be able to use rear facing camera.Device with 2.3 or higher will be able to use both front & rear facing camera.
    If you are using 2.2(Froyo) or above on a device not listed,you should be able to enable video calling within skype setting.Please note that the video calling quality may not be as good as on the supported device.Your phone will not be able to video call if this setting is unavailable.

    You can make video calls using skype but your phone must meet minimum requirements like :
    Android version 2.3 or higher
    Latest version of skype
    Front facing camera
    NEON chipset for better performance
    And better 3G or wifi connention

    Now sign in to skype app
    Go to setting
    Select enable video calling.

    Android Camera works fine with Skype. You need to alter the Skype setting in a such a way it turns on during video calls.

    Steps:
    • whenever you make a video call, make sure you have enabled the camera option by going into the Skype Settings.
    • During video calls, the Camera options open automatically, if not, Click Menu after attending the call, it will show various options, in that You can choose "Turn into Video Call" and this enables Camera.
    • In most of the mobiles,only the back side camera works with Skype.

    hey

    Skype works with android 2.3 or higher. So if you have a cell phone with atleast gingerbread then it should work fine.

    Just install the latest version of skype and login with your account details. The camera will work automatically thanks

    Dear./.

    As Android 2.2 is not permissible to provide video call service as 2.3 has, that's why you are not gets the benefit of this service.
    Try to sort this problem with your Customer Support Center and upgraded to the next level or version.

    Thanks
