    me too. The Veo "appears" to work with Windows Messenger and I have closed down any connections to the webcam but Skype says it can't access.

    Apparently no one with technical knowledge reads this site, given the number of us who have the same problem connecting Veo webcams to Skype and of course Skype is of no help either ...frustrating!
