Everytime I launch Skype 6.3 on Mac OSX 10.8.3 it crashes.
I don't have these installed-
- ecamm Call Recorder for Skype
- ecamm iGlasses
I uninstalled Skype and re-installed it, no change.
I had the same problem with 6.2 running on 10.8.2
Downgrading to 6.0 worked, but Skype kept on upgrading itself to 6.2 in the background, resulting in the crash again.
I've done lots of permission repair and restarts to no avail.
here's part of crash report-

Does this help narrow it down?

I don't have ecamm recorder on my computer anymore, but I did at one point. My guess is there are still some files somewhere that are causing skype to crash. Any ideas where I should look for these files?
You can download their installer, which will also allow you to uninstall it.
Otherwise, you can check for the existence of /Library/InputManagers/Ecamm/ and its content. Be careful, it's not "~/Library/InputManagers/", which means it's not the "Library" folder in your home directoy, but the one at the root of your disk.
You can access it by opening Finder, and in the "Go" menu, select "Go to Folder…", and enter (without the quotes) "/Library/InputManagers/", and then look for an Ecamm folder
I'm having the same problem. Upgraded to 10.8.3 last night and Skype has bee crashing all day.. this is a horrible worst case scenario for me, since I use Skype all day, every day!! I work at home doing web development, so, it's a major part of my workflow. Ouch.
6.1 work fine 6.2 and 6.3 crashes all the time and on 10.8.3 as well and on the MacBook Pro Retina 15 inch. Did every thing Skype said to do and still it Crashes only one that works is 6.1 and have it up now and it is fine.
uninstall again, reinstall 6.0, login and go to change preferences to not update automatically, but while I am doing that, Skype updates itself to 6 point bloody 3 again, and crashes!!! AAAARRRRGGGHHH.
I have the same problem.
I also had this problem before when I was running OS X 10.8.2 and I was hoping that the update would fix it. No Luck. Have to switch to google chat or facetime.
