Skype and Video Calling

Hi,

I am looking to buy an N8 but was shocked to discover that video calling does not work on Skype?!

Does anyone know if Skype have plans to enable it? (Especially now it is a Microsoft company and they could do Nokia a quick favour!)

So, what are the alternatives...

Is Fring the best and only real alternative? Does this do video fring-to-fring calling?

Thanks!

Don't know about Skype - I don't use it.

Fring does do Fring-Fring video calls. However, I have had a few problems with it: I video call a Fring-user with an Android phone. I can see him fine, but he receives a warning about an old Fring version and just sees a black box where my image should be.

Currently querying this with Fring Support.

Thanks - I'll give Fring a try. Please update if you get the Android issue sorted!

Cheers
