Thanks for the support, I was out of town the whole week so unfortunately not much progress here.
Couple of answers to the questions raised above:
- This will not be an addon, at the moment to provide a "quick" solution, I intend to integrate Skype and Google Talk into the XBMC core. I think that in the long term XBMC should have an API for those kind of things.
So far I couldn't find a good way to render the video from an addon, this is why I integrate it into the core.
- Regarding Skype - Are there any lawyers in the audience ? I'm trying to figure out the SkypeKit distribution terms and limitations ( Don't want to get sued by Microsoft... ).
- In parallel I'm working on a Google Talk solution and made some progress ( Nothing that I can show at the moment). Will provide more updates soon.
