yes, i will contact them when i have a bit more time.

just flashed another firmware (froyo.xxjm6) and its the same.

by the way, i do not recommend to flash firmwares which are not official, except you know what you are doing. just to say, i was pretty close to brick my galaxy tab...

without any doubt it is also something on sams site.
the new version gingersomething will come native with that as i have readen in other boards.

but one thing tells me also that yahoo can do something more, as they say now "not for samsung galaxy". so the issue seems to be known.

will keep tryin

ok guys,

after some weeks i took the fight again and voila!!!!!!!:cold:

oovoo works! on windows pc and sgt! over wifi and 3g!!!!!!

sorry guys, i´m still crying, finally, who the f..k is skype :P

for you interest my system:
GT P1000 eur
kernel V15 OC richardtrip (look on xda for it) and a own modified modaco rom (modifications are not influencing the video chat function) plus conversion to ext4 filesystem.

edit: no other video chat software is really working actually, except one i will not mention the name which is just a 10 day trial and after very expensive....

yes, sometimes, the firmware version is too lower. so it can't do that. So you need to update the firmware.

yes you u can do video calls. oovoo works fine.
no idea if the firmware makes a difference, but i ca. recommend everybody to get away from stock and convert to ext4. performance is much better.

hi guys,

just an update.

as oovoo was giving also trouble (in newer versions problem with camera orientation and screen scaling), i will try now google talk.
since today overcome rom 2.0.0-gold is available (gingerbread tuned), alterbridge from xda is promissing ot should work with front facing camera.

i will try and give an update when i got success.

for every interested, the new overcome rom is the much way best i had on my tab. give it a try!

i have readen also, that gingerbread 2.3.4 supports skype. unfortunately not available for sgt, only version 2.3.3
