New version is out. Downloaded, rebooted, and video chat connections between our 2 EVO's is still intermittent. Anyone seeing an improvement?
Here's the release info from Qik's blog:
Hey HTC EVO 4G Qikkers – Thanks to all of you for sending us your great feedback. We are glad to see you video chatting away. We are currently seeing more than 25,000 video chats happening per day with an average of 4 minutes / video chat session.We know that many of you have hit issues and so we are excited to roll out this new release (version 3.54), which has a number of bug fixes including the following:
Connectivity issues improved: In certain network conditions, there were issues where it would take a long time to get connected and initiate a chat session. We have made changes to the way the connection is established to make it significantly faster than before.
Better performance in low network conditions: When the network bandwidth fluctuated below a certain threshold, sometimes the video would not flow both ways. With this update we now adapt to these conditions faster and more gracefully, enabling the 2-way video to perform much better.
SMS verification no longer necessary: With this update, we no longer send you an SMS to verify your phone number. So, if you have been waiting for your SMS to come through – you don’t have to wait anymore. Just update your client to this version and you’ll be all set.
Video chats are not automatically archived for playback: With this update your Qik Video Chats are no longer automatically archived to your account on , and we will be adding additional user controls for this much-requested feature in subsequent releases.
So, go on ahead – download “Qik for HTC EVO 4G” this version from the Android Market, give it try and keep sending us your feedback at .
Me either. It worked perfectly fine earlier in the day. Now I'm trying to connect with the same person and it's not working. I'm also getting text messages telling me to go to a site to accept the connection. It wasn't doing that before.
