Re: Video Chat

Are you using two different BBID's ? If you are using pin then I want to hear how you did it.

Look these post were at the very best of no help, at the worst they were obstructive. they don't deserve any sort of thanks as there was no effort to help. The truth of the matter is you know the problem and you don't know a solution. why don't you just admit that.


oh boy. "obstructive"?

 

Wow. I have posted and posted and asked you questions and so have so many others in this thread, and you just want to target me as your adversary.

 

That's helping you how?

The BBID would not be an issue if it was a simple task of logging in and out of a BBID on a playbook. As you are probably well familiar this is not an option. There seem to be many knock on problems caused from a poorly thought out role of BBID. What should be expected is the BBID being used on multiple devices. I strongly suggest you re read the entire thread. An alternative to identifying devices independent of BBID and very device specific is essential. this is a major deficiency. In my view it makes the video chat not workable.  The best solution is to use Skype. I don't have this issue with Skype.

I have never used the BBID to connect to any device using the video chat, I always use the PIN, it is much simpler that way as it is always unique to every devices

Re: Video Chat

I agree. It doesn't work for me. I can see the playbooks are online but I can't call them. I am very interested to hear how you managed to make it work. Are the BBIDs the same on the playbooks?

Re: Video Chat

This is good. This is what I want to do. Odd why playbooks can't do that. I can see the other playbook. I can see it is online but when I call up one playbook from the other the call can't connect.
