Firstly, the two are compatible with one another, so the fact that you're each on separate
platforms doesn't matter. Audio has been in every Messenger release since 3.x (all
versions), video for all platforms was added via a plugin in 5.x and then fully to all
platforms in 6.x.
That being stated, this can commonly be caused by the QoS Packet Scheduler. To do so, click
Start, then click the Control Panel. If you're in category view click Network and Internet
connections then click Network Connections. Right click your network/internet connection,
then click Properties. Uncheck the QoS Packet Scheduler, then reboot and try again. If
you're unable to uncheck it (grayed but still on), choose the Uninstall button instead.
