You know I LOVE putting sh** on my iphone mates but today I discovered that I can't use the video call function of skype on my Samsung!!

Is it really true that this great piece of kit can't do this??!!

Un-frigging-believable!!! :-(

Someone please tell me that I've missed some app' function.

Say it ain't so.......

Hi,
I downloaded this zip file onto my pc but unzipped this seems huge. Also, if I download it directly onto my SG, I don't see how the phone can unzip and install the files.

Can you clarify how this is supposed to be installed? :-)

Cheers,
 Pete'

Downloaded on your PC:

1 ) Unzip.

2 ) Transfer it into your device.

3 ) On your device, open "My Files", navigate to the folder where you'd saved the file and tap on it to install.


Downloaded on your Galaxy S:

1 ) Using a third-party file explorer e.g. Astro.

2 ) Goto the Download folder, tap on the .zip file (depending on which file explorer, the extracting of the .zip may be different).

3 ) Tap on the extracted file to install.

Hi Guys, I've tried this file and it wont install. I downloaded as instructed above using Astro on my phone and clicked on the file named "com.skypevideo.apk" , it opens a file called "com.skype.merlin_mecha" which I try to install but it just comes up with the message "Application not installed".

I also tried the other file recommended off the Villian site and while it will install, every time I try to use the video skype function, the entire phone screen just goes black and it then the program crashes.

Any thoughts?

If it is a .apk, you don't have to extract it, just tap on it to install.

Try using the default file explorer: "My Files".
