As the title says, group video calling is currently not possible on Linux nor Android. This means that while you can participate in a group call, you will not be able to see other people, nor will they see you, only sound is possible.
This happens EVEN if you pay for a premium Skype account.
Linux: "... However, it is not possible to make group video calls." (top of the page)
Android: "Unfortunately, Skype for Android does not support group video calls. You can participate in a group call, but only using audio - you will not be able to send or receive video." (last question)
Note that other people may or may not see an error, while all you will see is a disabled video button.
Hope this helps someone. Because this needs to be stated more clearly. On the client. When you try to enable the call. Not hidden somewhere on semi-related pages.
