How to Make Free Video Calling on TV (Buy Nothing)

You have the experience of video calls on your mobile, tablet or your computer screen. Well all those are pretty small screen. Though it is exciting to make video calls but we all are used to it now and get very less fun in those calls. The experience of video calling on a bigger screen (say your television) is just amazing.

We have been discussing how you can enjoy skype calling on your TV with the method of buying Skype Ready TV or purchasing a TV Webcam (and/or Skype Blu Ray Player). Though all of these works pretty good, but thing is all of these methods requires you to spend some good amount of money.

What people have asked us is to provide a solution so that they don't have to buy any new special television, or any special webcam devices or those blu ray players. We decided to just post one of the simplest and easiest method to make video calls on your TV and without the need to buy anything extra. Lets see how.

Concept : Free Video Calls on Television

What you want is to see the other person on a bigger screen. In the methods we posted earlier (buying Skype Ready TV) also required that webcam and Mic to be separate and extra. So all the input devices are apart from TV. Skype was something which was played (installed in the TV) or blu ray player. Offcourse you could have also used your Playstation for video calling with Skype.

If we can just use our normal webcam and Skype (which is installed on your computer or smartphone) and use the TV screen to view the other person. For speakers (audio output), we can either use the TV speakers or your computer speakers.

PS : Though in the post we have been using Skype (as our video calling software), but the method works for any video calling software like ooVoo, Fring, Tango or any other which you normally use.


- Laptop where you have Skype (or any video calling software) Installed
- Webcam (Any webcam or laptop webcam also works)
- TV (with or without HDMI support works)
- HDMI cable if your TV and laptop have HDMI support, otherwise VGA cable also works.

If your TV/Laptop has HDMI support, then you will get audio from TV speakers. Otherwise the audio will still be from external or laptop speakers.

Setup and Instructions : Video Calling on TV

1. Make sure that Skype is installed and working properly on your laptop.
2. Connect your webcam to your laptop (skip this is webcam already in laptop)
3. Connect your computer to your TV using the HDMI Cable or VGA Cable.
4. Press suitable keys so that screen is shared with TV/projector.
5. You will now see the laptop screen on your TV.
6. Start Skype on your laptop (its output will be on TV only).
7. Mic is used of laptop only, so make sure it is not at very distance from you.
8. Speakers output is of TV or your laptop.

Facing any problems, just let us know in the comment section.

Skype-ready Blu-ray player to make video calls on TV

Continuing on the series of posts about enhancing your video calls experience, we decided to check out the third option for skype video calls on TV, that is "Skype Ready Blu Ray Player and TV Webcam". We have already covered about Skype ready TV and TelyHD Cam which are other two options for video calls on television using Skype.

This method is again for the people who do not have any Skype Ready TV and want to make video calls on their normal TV (offcourse there is no sense spending so much money to buy new television, just for one additional feature). So what we are suggesting is a Skype Ready Blu Ray Player and a TV Webcam which can be connected to your television and convert it to video calling device.

With Skype on your TV, you can enjoy high quality Skype calls with family and friends around the world right from your living room. No computer needed. No complicated equipment to set up and manage. All you have to do is plug in, gather the family and — hey presto — there’s always something great to watch.

The combination goes like
Blu Ray Player (Skype Ready) + TV Webcam + Broadband Internet + TV + Skype Account = Ultimate experience of video calls.

TelyHD to Make Skype Video Calls on TV (Any HDTV) : Skype TV Cam

We have already discussed how amazing the experience of video calling on tv is. We also discussed some of the Skype ready television which you can buy (are available in India) and make video calls. Off course that is a very good option, but it make sense only when you are buying a new television.

What if you have an old HDTV (which is not Skype ready) and you still want to make video calls on it. It does make sense because even the Skype ready tv does not have any Camera and Microphone, what they have is just Skype installed on the TV. What if we can have a device which has wifi connectivity, has a camera and microphone and also has Skype installed in it. It is like a Skype Box which I just have to connect to television and I can make skype video calls.

The answer is Yes! We are talking about a smart skype box by Tele labs, named "TelyHD". It is a tely cam which you can connect to hdtv and enjoy the video calls on your sofa.

You require
- A TV Cam (Tely HD)
- Broadband connection (wifi)
- Skype Account

- Another Option : Use Skype Blu Ray Players on your TV

If you already have a Sony Playstation, then you can use it on your TV to make video calls.

If you are willing to spend slightly more than you should consider buying a Skype Ready TV only (Panasonic, Samsung or Sony), it is your choice. Consider ready the review.

Skype TV in India by Panasonic, Samsung, Sony (Skype Ready)

Video calling was never so interesting. We have experienced the video calling through our computer, then we tried face to face calls with our tablet and then last was smartphone (iPhone/Android/Nokia/Windows..). The pattern was that the device was getting smaller and so was the screen size.

I understand that since it is getting more portable, video calling was more convenient. But was it more enjoyable, was the experience getting better. The answer is No. So how could your video calling be enhanced, and many people said "Video Calls via Television or on projector screen". This is something not new (as we have already seen many companies having the facility at their offices for video conferencing), but it has been quite expensive and not a home solution.

As the technology is advancing, we have now smart television which are capable of offering you an amazing video calling experience. Conceptually what you require is just a camera, internet and some software code in your TV so that it can offer you video calls. Infact we already have this feature in the market, giving Skype Video calls on TV. Yes, in India as well.

Today we will explore some television's and their price in India, which offer the Skype Video Calling Facility. Off course buying the Skype ready TV is not the only solution for video calls. There are some other solutions as well like connecting iPad to TV, buying a Skype Box, connecting web cam and some devices to tv for video calls, connecting your PC to your television, etc etc..

Please note that though these TV's are Skype ready, but these may/may not have Webcam and Mic in them. These needs to be purchased separately. These cost approx Rs 5000 (for camera ad Mic), which should not hurt you much as it will be a great video calling experience.

What Localphone does NOT offer is huge phone bills, bad call quality, always changing terms and conditions, always changing calling rates and headache and problems. Trust me the deciding factor when choosing a calling card or voip service should not always be calling rates. Off course calling rates has to be competitive and lower, but other things like call quality and customer support does matter. This is where Localphone comes, so if you have made a decision to go with it then you won't regret your decision.

And before you go into joining Localphone and buy some credit, read on. We have an voucher code and some good tips for you. It is offering free coupon code/voucher code, lets check details about it.

Vonage Calling Cards for Cheap International Calls

Vonage needs no introduction, one of the biggest telecom provider. It has entered a new business and started a new dimension with launching its calling cards service in the name of "Vonage Digital Calling Card". I think Vonage understand that already large number of people prefer calling cards and voip services for international calls, and it will be better if that launch their own service offering cheap calls.

I guess Vonage is following the pattern what Indian Telecom Providers started. If you remember AirtelCallHome by Airtel, Reliance Global Call by Reliance Telecommunications etc. Lets see how many people actually start using Vonage.

Though this calling card service is a Vonage company but in order to use these digital calling cards, you need not to be an old vonage customer. Any one can sign up for this calling card service. It works like an old traditional calling card, where you have to register your phone number from which you will be making calls. Then you have to dial an local access number (its pinless service as you registered your phone), followed by your destination number.

Calling rates offered by Vonage are not bad but surely they are not the cheapest ones. Considering the pricing, they offer various plans (which we will talk below). Regarding the call quality, it is pretty decent.

We checked the calling rates for India, and below is the summary.
Bonus Rate with $25 Purchase : 1.7 cents per min
Bonus Rate with $15 Purchase : 1.8 cents per min
Standard Rate with $5 Purchase : 2.4 cents per min.

Mexico: 4.6 cents per minute (2.1 cents per minute for Guadalajara, Mexico city, and Monterrey)
United Kingdom: 1.4 cents per minute landlines and 10.8 cents per minute for cell phones.

Vonage India

How to Get Started

1. Create your account and add funds.
2. Vonage will call you to validate your phone number.
3. Start calling.

What's so special ?

Vonage has something special for its customers. Vonage is offering some extra credit (bonus) on purchase of $15 or $25 credit. The bonus for $15 purchase is $5 and for $25 purchase it is $10. What it means is, that if you purchase $15 credit you will get $20 worth of talk time. With $25 amount you spend, you will get $35 worth of talktime.The rates mentioned on the site are considering the plan you choose for, interesting marketing strategy I would say.

I guess this kind of strategy works only one time, soon people realize that they are not actually getting what they told. It would have been better if Vonage would have offered lowest rates in the industry and kept them consistently low.

Any hidden charges ?

There are no hidden charges as said by the company. But if you check the website again, you will see that they have a clause regarding inactive fee (what the hell is that ?)...
This is what they have to say about it :

Your Digital Calling Card purchases do not expire, but if your card is not used for six months, an Inactivity Fee of $2 is deducted each month you do not make a call per the Terms of Service. 

You will receive an email notification if an Inactivity Fee is placed against your account.  Once you resume making calls, the Inactivity Fee is no longer assessed.


Anything else I should know ?

Yup there's more. Though you can register any telephone number with your calling card, but please note that you may only have one phone number active on your account at a time. What that means is you can make calls from only one phone.

So if you and your spouse both want to use the same calling card at the same time, than its just not possible now. That's pretty bad!

At this time you can only register one phone number per account. If you would like to switch the phone number registered on your account you can always change it by signing into your Online Account.

Why should I buy a tablet : Reasons to buy tablet PC

So many people have asked me this question and off course its variants. "Why should I buy a tablet instead of a laptop", "Why should I buy a tablet when I already have a laptop", "Why should iPad when I already have a smartphone or an iPhone", blah blah blah the question is same.

The answer to this question may not be that straight forward, the reason may vary person to person depending upon their needs. You may be having an laptop but buying tablet for your mom (or even for yourself) can be an option.

I am myself having a smartphone, laptop and a tablet and I have no regrets. Infact I use them all for different purposes and it works for me. We thought to prepare a list of top reasons why you should consider buying a tablet (or a Phablet = Phone + Tablet). I just love writing these kinda articles or preparing a list of reasons.

Reasons to buy a Tablet

Video Calls
This is a voip blog, so quite obvious this reason comes to mind at first. You can though make video calls from your phone or laptop as well, but trust me the video calling experience (and the ease of making them) is just too smooth. Even my mom can operate my iPad!

Size and Weight
One of the biggest reason to go with a tablet PC compared to a laptop. Tablets have the size roughly of a small pad of paper and a weight that is under two pounds. Most laptops are far larger and heavier.

Portability and Handiness
Have you ever seen a person standing, moving and still operating his laptop. Tablet are just so much portable and handy. Carry them anywhere and operate with so much ease.

How much time does your laptop takes to open up (few minutes), well my tablet opens up in two seconds. Checking emails, surfing internet, reading books, small tasks like editing something... these are just too easy on tablet. An application is available for almost all things. Managing your finances was never so easy. For meetings you can jot down notes and download any relevant documents you may need to reference, into the tablet. That way, you won't have to shuffle through a pile of papers searching for a specific chart or diagram.

Battery Life
You always need a charger with a laptop, its battery life is so poor. On the other hand, tablets have great battery life. Charge it once and use it for a day (continuous usage).

Playing Games
Are you not just fed up of playing games on your phone (which is very small screen) or your laptop (which just gives you a 2d feeling). Try gaming on your tablet. Be it a racing game, shooting or strategy you will just love the experience.

Cheapest (and a decent one) laptop will cost you about 20-30K (INR). However you will get a tablet for very low price starting from 5K INR. You will get iPad for 25K!

Other reasons
- Music and Movies : better experience on tablet
- Entertainment
- Applications for almost everything

Well there are many things that you cannot do with your tablet (or are difficult to do with iPad) but if your purpose is just to play games, internet surfing and video calling, music, movies and simple stuff then answer is tablet !
