I am trying to do three-way video calling, but Skype does not support this on the mobile version, and Google + is not available for Kindle, so I cannot use Google Hangout. Is there any other way I could do three way video calling? Is it possible to somehow hook my Kindle to the computer and just use the camera as a webcam for my desktop since I can use Skype for my desktop to do three way calling?

If you can use Skype on your desktop, why do you need to connect your kindle?

I don't have a camera or microphone for my desktop. I don't regularly need to do three way calling, and normally just use Skype on my Kindle.

Ahh ok, got ya. I don't think the Fire would be able to do what you want it to by hooking it up to your computer. You might be better off getting a small webcam to attach to your desktop.

Agree, a webcam and mic are pretty inexpensive and will be much less hassle to try to use with your PC than cobbling up some way to use the Fire as a webcam/mic.

Yeah, I only really need to do it for tomorrow, so if worse comes to worse I'll just do three way voice calling, but I was hoping there might be some other program that would let me do three way video on the Kindle or something. I don't really feel like spending $10 or more to get a webcam to use once and then just having another thing I won't use sitting around my house. Thanks for the suggestions though :)
