    How can i make a video call on Skype when on ipad? When I open the app, there is no option to make a video call! I can make one np using my pc but seems a different interface on ipad? This is weird 'cos my brother who has an older ipad can do this!
    (ipad4, IOS7)

    Have the people you added to your directory agreed to accept you as a contact for Skype? If they don't accept, you can make audio calls to them but can't make video calls.

    Skype only costs money to use if you're calling people at their mobile of landline phone numbers or want to send SMS messages to them. If you call other Skype members it costs nothing at all. Check my previous post, I've edited it to provide more information.

    ??, yes, that what Im trying to do! My brother has skype & I often video call him in Thailand using my pc - no probs! However Ive just tried to video call him using ipad & I have no option to make a video call, only an audio call! I have gone to settings , privacy as others have suggested but I have no option there for skype! So there is no way i can enable video as far as I can see!

    Have you tried deleting the app and re-downloading it?
