Skype with Video for HTC Thunderbolt and other devices

Well it looks like the guys down in DroidLife have released a copy of Skype with Video for phones that did not get it with the recent Skype update.

Skype with Video

So far the list of phones that do work with this version of Skype are:

  • Samsung Galaxy S2
  • HTC Thunderbolt on 2.3
  • HTC Evo 3D
  • HTC Sensation
  • Nexus S
  • HTC Flyer
  • HTC EVO 4G

According to DroidLife, their devices are running on Android 2.3 and seems to be working fine.

In order to install this software, you need to uninstall all previous versions of Skype first, then run the installation.

I came across a hiccup when I tried to install it and got an error:

There is a problem parsing the package.

I resolved the issue by uninstalling all previous versions, uploading the file manually to my phone, then running the installation through Astro File Manager.

My HTC Thunderbolt runs on Android 2.2 ver. 1.16.00.0402w_1 – Unfortunately this version of Skype was not working with my phone, so I reverted back to the old Skype with Video version. This new version of Skype might work for those of you Thunderbolt users who have recently updated your phones and have since not been able to use the old leak – let us know if it does work in the comments below.

If you would like to download the new Skype with Video for your Android phone, links are posted below. Please leave a comment letting us know if this version worked on your phone or not! Thanks 😀

    Everytime I download this it says its a binary file and that android file transfer cant open it, or any of them. what am i doing wont. I uninstalled everything. i am downloading to an imac. I have the bootleg version for skype working flawlessly and verizon screwed me with update.(intentionally im sure) and I really want it back will someone write back if there thunderbolt running 2.2.1 has had any luck. I am freaking out

    • You can actually download Skype from the Android Market now and it supports Video Calling for HTC Thunderbolt.

      Only problem is, it can only use the back camera and not the front one yet… That will be supposedly fixed when Gingerbread comes out in Q3…

    I have tried downloading every possible version of skype w/video calling and none of them work. It does download skype but there is no video option. I did have it successfully before but then was advised by verizon wireless to update the software to try to fix an issue I was having. After the software update I am no longer able to get the video version of skype working. So frustrated with verizon! Skype video was on of the top 3 reasons I bought this phone. If anyone can help me I would ao appreciate it.

    • Yeah, many people are saying that since they updated their phone via Verizon, Skype with Video doesn’t work anymore. Will post again if there is any new development in that area!

      Neither works on thunder bolt.
      I agree, if I don’t receive the new 2.3.4 soon, I will exchange my phone

      • From what I’ve read, they’ve delayed the GB update on Thunderbolt again. So looks like we’re going to be waiting for quite a bit 🙁
