Skype plugin based on SkypeKit is dead
« on: 06 08 2014, 11:47:58 »
Skype plugin based on SkypeKit  stopped working today (as was promised  by Microsoft). We will keep it for about a month, so users can export history or whatever they want to do with it. Then plugin will be banned by Miranda core and deleted by PluginUpdater from Plugins folder.

Hi,

could you please put a new version of the Miranda NG IM Updater http://wiki.miranda-ng.org/index.php?title=Plugin:IM_Updater/de?

The current version replaces a former Skype-Classic-Plugin by the SkypeKit.

I currently want to change from Miranda IM to Miranda NG - so it would be perfect if a new version of the IM Updater would make a change keeping the Skype-Classic-Plugin easier (otherwise i have to reconfigure the classic-plugin...).

Would be very helpful! Thank you very much!
Frederik

Sad news really... :-/
How can I convert (if possible) my Skype contacts to SkypeClassic. By convert I mean keeping their history and other settings the same? If I just add the SkypeClassic plugin, the result is I get every skype contact duplicated, one from Skype, one from SkypeClassic, without histroy.

Miranda need different skype.dll

It should be actually bought with the key. We won't spend any more money (and they are not selling anymore).

Plugin is dead. Period. We won't prolong its agony.

You need to patch the certificate into the skype Plugin dll too if you want it to work with a Trillian-version of Skypekit  :)
So my old patcher may become handy

Once again - SkypeKit is dead, period, we will not patch or use someone else certificate that will inevitably lead to account ban sooner or later. Thread is closed.
