    Skype and tango video conferencing apps do work, n very well, with ipad1. BUT the drawback is since iPad has no cam, they can't see u, BUT U CAN STILL SEE IN HEAR n talk to THEM JUST FINE. I use them all the time now. I was amazed my ipad1 could do that even though I had no cam. Anyways, sometimes u don't want the other person to see u..lmfao. But it works though. I know cuz I use them. Tango let's u video chat across multiple formats or with people with mobile phones that has tango installed. I think it's really cool my iPad can do that!

    Easy there... calm down.

    Now reread the first post. I think we all know skype works, and it has for some time. But when someone asks about a Webcam, as in a piece of hardware, we kinda know what the question is. And it is not about simply running skype. It's about, well, using a webcam with skype.

    Oh I know. I was letting the new readers of the post know, basically. But yeah, it sux ipad1 has no USB cam support even though it could be easily possible. Apple restricted it so that ipad2 would look appealing. Cuz if ipad1 had USB cam support, there would be a lot less people buying ipad2.

    Maybe jailbreaking is the answer?

    I meant the USB camera kit could perhaps be hacked for other purposes.
