    Hey everyone!
    So I dusted off my Playbook today and after months of staying away from the forums, I'm curious if a cross-platform video chat solution was ever released or if anyone figured out how to do it.
    Thanks

    I've seen it mentioned around that you can initiate video calls between the PlayBook and BlackBerry 10-smartphone
    Don't know how tho, as I never owned a PlayBook myself

    If you add your Z10's BBID to the playbook's contact list you should see it in the playbook's video chat app.

    VideoChat works perfect with the Z10, but if you have the Z30, It is not as fluent.

    I truly hope that Blackberry addresses this problem...You would think that if you had the "Flag ship Model (Z30) " , that you should have at least the functionality of the Z10 plus extras....

    How do you call your wife ? Is it via the Hub ? If not, please explain how you did this....

    I have used Gruveo (www.gruveo.com) with the Playbook to connect to a laptop running Win 7. Presumably it will work with other platforms as long as they support flash, which might rule out Apple products. As others have mentioned, I have also used the built in Playbook video app to connect to BB10 users.

    Go to the 'video chat' app on your playbook, enter the blackberry ID of the person you're trying to call in the tab at the top left of the screen(only works with bb10 phones, and playbooks obviously) then hit call.

    But to call a playbook from a bb10 phones is more tricky, since you'll have to call that person first and then whenever that person wants to call you, he'll need to go in the hub then find the last call that was done between you two and then hit open and that'll call the your playbook.
