    I conducted my first skype call today with an old friend.

    I got his audio and video out of sync. He got my audio but no video. All I saw was a white box on the top left. I tried everything but couldn't manage video out.

    Bandwidth @ home is 20mb down, 60mb up. Fiber with N router, so it shouldn't be bandwidth issues.

    Help

    I was successful with video skype with my brother when he used his skype app on his windows laptop. (but not when he used his macbook) Other than occasional lag, it worked well. So there may be some issues with mac skype app. I don't use skype video regularly so can't give you much more info.

    so far I've had almost no problem with Skype. video and sound out of sync is a skyoe issue and I get that every so often on my PC, too.

    It's not perfect yet, but it's pretty amazing.

    I've tried Skype video from my TouchPad to my kids iPod Touch, as well as my wife's iPhone 4 and they see my video but I cant see theirs.

    I'll try contacting desktop apps later, but I hope they fix the iPhone/iPod touch issue.

    the skype issues your having should be fixed by a TP reboot. I was doing this with my nephew and killed a video call right in the middle by using card view and when I came back video was a no go... I reboot and tried again after failing many times and then the reboot fixed it.

    The fastest way to install Preware on your WebOS device.
    Put your device in Developer mode.
    From your PC download the Preware installer from http://get.preware.org
    Run the Preware installer while the WebOS device is connected with the USB cable to your PC.
    Vualla Preware is installed.]

    Hmm my dad called this morning on Skype and I didn't get his video nor did he see mine. Audio only, it seems.

    Yep. But that didn't give me any video, no did it allow me to send video.
