Does anybody have a decent solution on how to use Skype with camera? The only approach I know of, is IPCam, which is sort of semi-optimal, also due the low frame rate in order to avoid FC's.
Thanks for any hint.
Also does camera zoom work in Skype?

I think the Thunderbolt was supposed to have Skype with webcam support but it was pulled last minute due to technical problems. It won't be long until they release it officially, though, and even if your device won't be supported initially, someone will make it work for any device.

So far, I've only used Fring with video and it worked pretty well; though there's no desktop client so it's phone-to-phone only. You can give it a go here:

PS. There was a hacked version of Yahoo Messenger that worked with video too, but last I checked it forced you to update to the official version and wouldn't work anymore. Hope that helped.
