Anyone else use Skype?

Since my DS doesn't really like talking on the phone, Skype is a livesaver for us. He loves being able to see who he is talking to. Now he actually gets to know his Poppi and KayKay (my dad and stepmom) even though we only get to see them once a year.

If you use it, I know you can do conference calls but I can't get the video to work. I can hear everyone but not see them. Anyone know how to fix the video?

    To make calls you do but to chat and do video it's free. I have it and don't pay a thing.

  • I get the video as long as I am only talking to one person but if I try to talk to someone else as well the video goes away. I know it isn't my webcam.

  • You only have to pay for phone calls. Like mommy of two said. Video chats are free.
