    Front facing camera very poor video qulaity even after ICS upgrade

    Hello all, I used Skype to make a video call on my Xoom last week with my friend who has Ipad2. The video quality from Xoom was very dark and poor. I thought ICS might have fixed it but I guess no luck. When I use my Galalxy Nexus with Skype, it is pretty good.

    A variety of reasons/fixes .. ck settings on your Xoom .. iPad2 has lower quality cameras compared to the Xoom that may affect your reception. Not much you can do about that.


    Happy 2nd BDay Xoom 2/24

    Are you using the gnex in the same lighting as the xoom when making video calls? All I can suggest is to light the room better, also make sure the light is in front of you, not behind you.

    Yes, I use gnex from the same room and with same lighting. Xoom's picture is always very dark even without video conference. If I just turn on front video camera, the picture is always very dark.

    I used Skype video calling in my bedroom with the light on, the quality was fine... not awesome but good enough for a 2mp camera.

    I assume the problem is with the default iso settings in the xooms front camera.

    It's not adjustable, just exposure. and i'm not sure if you can adjust that while using skype as I don't use it.

    Are you using Skype over 4g on your Galaxy Nexus and wifi on your Xoom? The reason I ask is the fact that Skype changes the video quality depending on your upload speeds. For example my HTC Thunderbolt have better skype video quality when I'm connected to 4g as oppose to my wifi network because my upload speeds are around 512k-768k. But 4g upload speeds are 5 megs and up. If you have a 4g Xoom and are using the 4g network then obviously this won't apply.
