drmike, I was able to find and download the Skype app, thanks to your post!
However, though it does run on my Archos 101, I cannot seem to get my camera to work with it (or ooVoo for that matter). The call goes thru fine and I can hear the other person and they can hear me, and I can see the other person, but they cannot see me and I cannot see myself either in Skype. Any ideas? Thanks for the help!
Thanks - this really works. After thrashing around for a couple of days for ever encountering "There are no Android phones associated with this account. Please sign in with a different account." and being told by Archos that "We do not support third party applications, we invite you to contact the developer of this application for further information." I was about to give up.
I'm new to Skype and haven't tried it yet but the program loads and gives every impression that it is going work OK.
So thank you Matthew, now I won't tear out any more hair!
Just a note: If youare running an old version of the archos 101 firmware, you will be able to load but will not have video.....it will be black....audio connection will work fine.
When I bought my tablet it had an older version of firmware on it and I had this problem.
I had to manually update the firmware (not thru the "update firmware" function of the tablet -- that didnt work). The next to the newest firmware update 9I think it is 4.65??) fixed the black video box problem.
Now, Skype does work fine.
Thanks for your help, I was able to get skype but the video as u said is black.
I am unable to find where I can get the newest firmware update as suggested by u.
What was the version ? Where did u find it ?
Your help will be appreciated
You can get thfirmware at the archos website
2.4.81 is thecurrent version, but I am running 2.4.65. Havent tried the new version yet but I am sure it works fine.
