I downloaded and set up Gmail some time ago-works well
I have everything working BUT the video set up to be able to view/chat to a contact-as does Skype- which I normally use----this video setup gets to "download and install video" etc, which it does, but nothing I can do will get my name showing a icon/camera,denoting I can view the other party will work
As I say it has worked perfectly but the demand settings that requires that to work no longer shows in the panel

Now --and I am damned if I can get it to load and display the fact I have video available

My contact has a camera icon beside his name,here , but he, in his turn, has no icon showing me as having a video,available

What am I missing- a cleanout of all things pertaining to the original download merely brings the old settings back ( must be stored on line)

It is not essential- just annoying something is beating me

Are you trying to use Gmail or Google talk?

I'm confused.

Hi Sweep and chilling,

I thought I was using gmail- now you have got me thinking--would Google talk use the same settings in gmail settings

In my efforts I tried and downloaded Google to see if I had missed something -neither worked and yet I have had Gmail video working- knowing my brain anything can happen.

What should I do then - delete Google?

Hi clever beggars :thanks

I deleted/uninstalled Google video and there in all it's glory is the panel to set up video---and the camera icon is there
Thanks both of you
