    Default Skype camera switch on Q10/Z10

    I am running Skype on leaked 10.1 on the Z10. Whenever I change camera to rear view the person on the other end gets a black screen, It works probably 1 in 10 attempts.

    People with the Q10 does the camera switch work? I am aware I am running unofficial versions so not too worried for the time being

    I have a Dev C with the retail OS and Skype and found the same issue. Switching to the back camera caused the picture to be completely blank on the other end of the call, even when I switched back to the front facing camera. In the end, I had to replace the video call to rectify the issue.

    Remember Skype isn't officially supported on the Z10 yet. Saying that, some are experiencing the same issue, some aren't!

    I am having a similar issue with my Q10, I tried to make a video call and I could see the person I was calling(iPhone5) but she could not see me. It prompted me to turn the video camera on, but no matter what I did, she could not see me. The screen in the lower right corner remained black. Anyone else have this issue or know of a fix? Thanks.

    Same with me tonight, tried the exact same scenario with my daughter on her iphone5. Would be interested in a solution if any.
