Skype installs fine using command:

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 application). I can't even make the test call to the skype echo service...it just says "call failed".

I removed and reinstalled skype using command:

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.
