VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

just posted on the PB forum 

I dont know how to share if not just posting here

----------------------------

Hi all

I dont know where to post I choose here but i would like  to post or to share with the Z10 forum as well

PLEASE admin . and Mods ..

.can you share  or post  with everybody.else ..

thanks... in the mean time I will post on my local forum

 

 

any whoo

Im the proud and Lucky owner of a Z10  and 2 Playbooks ( no complains at all)

 

and here is a little info  of how  all started...

 

I have 2 little girls  9 and 10   and they  where playing with the PBs around the house doing the video chat

and while they were hiding in places..

then I thought wouldnt be nice if you can chat with the Z10 the same way?????

well  one day I grabbed one PB

 

* I opened video chat:

* I add a New contact :

* name -  last name :   Z10   -   BB

* then I enter the Z10 Pin :      548XXXCD

 

then click .....save

then right there hit to connect with the Z10  and BANG ...I got the video call on my Z10 Wohhohooo:Clap: :Clap::Clap:

 

well it was an 80 % connection.. and the  voice was choppy... some times freezing

Maybe because the Z10 and that  one  PB share the same BB-id .?? and E-mail ??

.My wife took the other PB to a trip.. cant try right now,

 

THEN I went to the Z10

open contacts:

add new one:

Name - last name  ---     PLay  Book

PB pin:   --------------------  2434XXX

save.

 

opened BBm and invite contact...  sent the invite..

 

well it didnt work ....:smileysad:  Im still waiting on the acceptance  wich I never receiven on the PB

 

I tried  outside ,inside the house and around the Block ,

with BBm close  and BBm opened :Cowboy:

 

worked fantastic..well for that little bit that worked.....

no need to be on the same  page like Skype or other video chat..:Clap::Clap:

 

so far only from PlayBook cam make a call to the Z10 / BBm

but I cant from the Z10 to the PB:smileysad:

 

 PLease try if you have  a PB and Z10

its a fantastic way to connect with a native app instead a thirds party

 

I would like to know how to fix this..

 

I need some expert advice thanks..

 

should we push Blackberry to do something about it ??

 

or a good app for this????

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

I did the same tests...I noticed that if the Playbook is in motion..the sound gets choppy...just stand still and it works clearly...
Also there is some discussion that the PB on the same email address as the Z10 might not work in this mode...
But my Z10 to wifes Playbook works well (2 different ID's) and they both can ring each other over wifi...the Playbook shows up under Contacts in the Z10 and the icon lights up once the Playbook is connected to wifi letting you know it is online...
Hopefully once BB10 is introduced to the Playbook, one can direct connect between a Playbook and it's owners Z10 when they are separated (like calling the mothership)

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

I have had no issues communicating between:

 

Z10 to Z10

Z10 to Playbook

Playbook to Z10

 

The only issue that I can think maybe of real concern is using two devices on the same network without some really good dual zone DNS routing.

 

Try the z10 on LTE and the Playbook on the Wifi.

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

Lou,

 

My son actually calles me on my Z10 via Playbook with video chat and works amazing.  But I can't call him from my Z10 to Playbook, because when I got the playbook, I registered my BB ID same as my Z10.. The only way to make the Z10 call the Playbook is to have a diffrent BBID assoicated with the playbook. This can be done, but a secure wipe has to be done on the playbook and any software you bought would be gone.  The other way it would work is if Blackberry Installs BBM on the playbook then it would solve the issue.

When I'm clalling my someone on their  PlayBooks from my Z10 I open up my contacts app and select the person I want.  One of the options is to start a PlayBook Video Chat.  If I want to do a BBM video chat to their Z10 then I can initiate that from inside BBM.  They are using the same BBID on both.

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

That's where I cam debating also to wipe my Blackberry and register a new ID to the playbook.  It is such a nice feature and great to talk to your family when you are away from home.. My wife she switched to Iphone (traitor) , but misses the BBM to each other.. She actully misses her Blackberry, she caved into the dark side because of her social circle. Nice phone, but more of a toy for me.. If BB installs BBM on the Playbook then we can still BBM each other and video chat back and forth..
