    When using Skype I can hear the other person but not see them. I can see myself and the other person can hear and see me. I've tried it with a couple of people and it's the same each time. Can anyone help

    Thanks

    Are you sure they have cameras on their end that are in working order?

    Yes. We tried again on a laptop and it was fine. I've since googled the problem and it seems a common one on the iPad. Seems that Skype need to deal with the compatibility issue

    the first time you Skype someone you don't get video. next time voila video works. if it really bugs you.After initial contact with no video just hang up and the second call you'll get video.That is what has happened to me calling numerous people in Canada and the Uk

    And then everytime you call that same number the video works.....unless they are indisposed and turn off their camera.

    Thanks Diane. Will try that. Having looked at the Skype discussion forums, it does seem to be a recurring problem!
