Skype and Viber apps in my KitKat Build 7 150721

Skype problem

Posted 04-20-2011 at 02:07 PM by myklmar (Linux Gimux)

It happened again!
Updated Skype, video wouldn't work and it made my voice sound like donald duck!

Have discovered that with some installations Skype video won't work.
So....Try adding this as the properties of a shortcut:

I've saved mine as Ctrl + Alt + S

No more problems..
