I used Skype on iPhone for the first time yesterday.  Having never used it before, I didn't really know what to expect.  I called my sister, who used Skype on her PC with a webcam.  I could see her, but even though I turned on my front-facing camera, and the little picture-in-picture box came up and showed my face, she couldn't see me.  We could talk, though, she just couldn't see me though I could see her.

Does anyone know whether this is something I need to fix on my end, or would it be on her side?

Cheers

Lizard

That happened to me every time one of us had a crap internet connection. Were you on WiFi?

Yeah. It was around 7pm, which is usually when our connection grinds to unpleasant speeds, so maybe that's what it was.

I can't comment on your specific case, however I often use Skype Video on my iPhone 4 with people on their computers and I've had excellent experiences each time. I do have a quality fiber symmetrical internet feed at my end which might make the difference?
