Mac Extraordinaire :

Greetings,

What kind of video call was going on? Was it a Skype, Yahoo, or other program?

Customer:

not sure

Mac Extraordinaire :

Hello

Mac Extraordinaire :

Ok, are you asking this just as a future reference or did it happen to you?

Customer:

it happened

Mac Extraordinaire :

Ok

Mac Extraordinaire :

Do you know if it was done through a website?

Mac Extraordinaire :

The problem with many websites, including video calling websites, is that there may be a variety of pop-ups that display before, during, or after the video call.

Customer:

It was as we were hanging up. It was a video of what looked like a penis

Mac Extraordinaire :

The actual video calling program will not pop up an uninvited porn picture, but the websites that were up, may do so without your Okay.

Mac Extraordinaire :

Oh

Mac Extraordinaire :

Was the video in the same screen that you saw the original video in?

Customer:

I think we had pushed the off button

Mac Extraordinaire :

Ok

Mac Extraordinaire :

In short, the likelyhood that such a thing would happen are very slim.

Mac Extraordinaire :

Perhaps, it was just a random image that wasn't really a porn picture, but just resembled what you think it looked like.

Mac Extraordinaire :

Is there anything else I can be of assistance with today?

Customer:

If someone had been on a website before the call, could it have popped up? I will press accept but did not want

Customer:

to lose you yet

Mac Extraordinaire :

The way video is encoded and decoded dictates that it would not have popped up like that if someone was on their before.

Mac Extraordinaire :

This was very likely just a random issue.
