The video commercial for the Tab clearly shows a webcam phone call but I've been unable to get it to work with Skype or Fring... anyone have any luck or find an app that actually works? Thanks in advance!

BTW, if someone suggests an app that actually works, I'll be happy to put your name in a book I'm writing that's being published by Pearson on the Galaxy Tab in January 2011 (if you want) and acknowledge your help with this task.

Thanks!

James Floyd Kelly

Skype does not support video on anything but a PC. I wish they would. I use Skype video when I travel on business to talk to my family. My son would love it if I could do a video call from someplace interesting using the Galaxy.

There are other options for phone to phone video. None of them have worked well for me. I tried Fring, Tango, and Qik. None would give video as smooth as Skype for the PC. Nothing I have seen looks anything like the quality on the commercials.

Looks like no mention for me! I would settle for a working app.

there is an app called ClearSea which allows tab to pc video chat. Unfortunately you only get a demo account which lasts a couple weeks. Its really the only solution currently available.

When I first got my tab and tried the Qik Video Chat that came with it, it would not work, but kept freezing or restarting my app. I went to their website and left a message and after a few days it started working. They had me video call them and it worked great. The uploading to their site and facebook also works.

I'll download and test the app - would you be willing to try a test call with me later if I can get it to work?

Sure, however I will be in and out today as it's my birthday and I have both lunch and dinner plans. I should be available between 2:00-4:00pm eastern time or after 7:30pm tonight if that is better.

Awesome - between 2 and 4pm EDT should be great... my email is jktechwriter *at* gmail *dot* com - if you'll email me, I'll send you my mobile number so we can coordinate. Thanks for helping me to test... if I can get this to work, my publisher is willing to let me add a chapter at the tail end of the book that covers video chat. If we can get it to work...

Hi,

I have a verizon version of the galaxy tab. When I downloaded the Qik app it never saw an option for live chat. Is there another version of the Qik app?

Ross,

I'm in "talks" with Qik right now and apparently they are working on an app upgrade that will provide the Tab with video chat... as soon as I know more, I'll share it here.

Just tried to use QIK on my ATT tab and it crashed it three times. I would start recording a message (I saw no LIVE chat option) and in three seconds it would freeze, crash my tab to where I had to hold the power button down for a good ten seconds to get it to come back on.

I love the idea of the tab but certain things like this are not a smooth as I would have liked although it could be AT&T and not the tab itself. I'm considering taking it back and switching to Verizon or Sprint.

hello,

searched a lot yesterday before i end up here. I also tried Clearsea however the image on the pc is not clear. Could it because of my connection?
