The Vizo TV Cam is a scam. The program was installed on there TV's to prevent further sliding sale to competition. The Vizio cam even at the doubling of price is not available any longer.
Skype was purchased by Microsoft and has the USB licensing allocations locked up and to stop companies from going around that licensing using using HDMI instead they bought out another competitor. Again locking out tecknology and not providing or replacing the services they provided.
When will these companies move to Linux and open source so manufacturers can supply what consumers want and are willing to pay for.
Vizio placed the software on there TV's as a fraud to compete with Samsung and there android operating system devices. Microsoft is not capable of writing software that can be loaded on the limited flash memory as can be done under Lenux.
