It is funny how a few promotions for Windows 8 and its devices show video chats. I've yet to find a good video chat client.
Messaging loses connection a lot and has no video chat support. Skype only has video messaging with Skype users and Facebook chat isn't working currently.
Most of my friends/family are on WLM for video chat needs. I could always load the old client but would like to have the "modern" app.
Any news on fixes for these apps, especially staying connected?

And you made a video call with a Windows Live account via Skype? I've yet to see that option...only with another Skype user. I really need video chat with a WLM user.

Sorry, misread what you wrote. Thought you had said Skype video calling didn't work. Blame that on tiredness xD.
In regards to messaging. Yes and It's happened on all my Windows 8 PC's too.
EDIT: I too wish the messaging application could video call. Would be nice to snap to the left or right and have it there like you can Skype.

Hmm... This Messaging does have a few issues. For example, if a contact is signed in via Outlook I can't reply to them. All I get is "We can't send this at the moment."
Skype however has no issues replying, also the message notifications seem to come through very poorly for both. With either one of the applications seemingly taking priority over another, but both extremely late at times.
Hopefully they fix it... Some of the issues could be Microsoft's end.
