    Open Skype, click the contact you wish to video call, and touch the camera icon at the top. Voice call, touch the handset icon next to it. On video, if you see yourself in the preview box, the issue may be at the other end. Is it the same contact, or any contact?

    I mentioned this on another thread awhile back, but when you are using Skype on the n7, the landscape mode of Skype will force you to rotate the n7 such that the wifi antenna is at the bottom left corner. You could be weakening the signal strength by covering it with a hand etc.,

    your laptop has a better antenna.

    Also, the android Skype app sucks in comparison to the Windows version.

    I'd agree. I have used my N7 to video call, but can't see any *test* mode in the android app, so tend to use the full size version on my PC.
