I have a Samsung 7.7 P6800 and I use it as a video surveillance camera with Skype.
In Skype settings I set the automatic answer with video and everything works fine.
The front canera is used by default but I would like to use the rear camera only since it has a better definition.
during the video call there is an option in skype for selecting the camera but working in automatic answer mode it's useless.

I don't need the front camera and I am ready to desable it but I need to keep the rear camera working.
I didn't find any app, can somebody suggest something?
Thanks

I don't think you will find any solution for this. I know g+ you can use the rear but I don't think there is an auto answer?

It's a pity beacuse I can switch from front to rear camera during skype video calls therefore there must be a way for keeping it on rear camera only by default either Android or Skype software modification.
Any expert here who can help?
