Skype installs fine (I used sudo apt-get install skype), and I could type text messages with my friends in skype,but I could not make any video calls (my webcam logitech c270 is fine---it works great with guvcview). I can't even make the test call to the skype echo service...it just says "call failed".
I removed and reinstalled skype (sudo apt-get remove skype) and the same thing kept happening. What is going on?
[UPDATE] So even though the Skype test call service fails....actual calls with other people work fine. So no complaints--its not like I wanted to have a conversation with the robot anyways.
