Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

I keep looking at this screen you provided and I am confused...

[IMG]http://i1194.photobucket.com/albums/aa372/Lou2969/​c7fa75df-d80d-4815-b920-4d0b1f7dee21.jpg[/IMG]

It shows that the person you setup as a contact has not yet acknowledged you as a BBM friend...that is..you haven't even got standard BBM approval yet..since it asks you to send an invite...

I suspect this is where your problem is...

In my case...My wife already acknowledged my Z10 on her BB9900
so when I try to access her Playbook...it accepts it...

Unless I am reading this screenprint incorrectly...the CONTACT you are using doesn't actually exist as a BBM client...or else you haven't gotten initial approval for contact because it clearly states you have yet to INVITE TO BBM, never mind the Video Chat...

Could this be the source of your conflicts?

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

Oh... and one other thing...
As I mentioned on my initial reply...
If you are trying to connect to your OWN Playbook...it probably doesn't work...or so I have been reading...as they are one and the same BBID's...
That is the issue I hope they will overcome in the BB10 OS for Playbook upgrade...as then the TAT video that I saw would make sense to me...

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

Hi there ..besides your suggestions ,
there must be a way to do the chat from the Z10 to the PB
it would be silly if not again why is OK for the opposite?

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

It is possible to chat from Z10 to the playbook, the issue lies when the z10 and the playbook have the same Blackberry ID associated with them.

 

In the case that they both use the same BBID you cannot currently start a chat from the z10 on that ID to the playbook on that ID, you receive the error message that is listed previously in the thread.

 

This seems to be a bug and I will submit it to Blackberry support and see what they say. Smiley Happy

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook -works

I was at my brothers and he has the playbook.. I added his Playbook Pin on my Z10 as a contact, and did video chat.. He was also able to call my cell phone via PIN of My z10.. So as long as the playbook Blackberry ID is not the same it works. I just might switch the ID on mine, but loose some of my downloads.

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook -works

I was able to use the pin or the email address assoicated with the BB ID on the playbook.

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook -works

Now Arsen..next time you Video Chat...connect your Z10 to a 32 inch TV via a mini HDMI cable and you will get a big picture effect for the whole family to see...any size tv accepting HDMI will work...
also makes gaming more effective...
