Make a video to send to someone on Skype

I am trying to find out if you are able to record a birthday video message to send to someone via skype.  Is this possible and if so how is it done on both PC and MAC.

most webcam software comes with the option to do self-recording.  You can simply record your greetings, then send the recorded file via Skype's file transfer option.

I don't see how that suggestion is dumb, since software does exist to perform that function.  So if your camera does not provide it, you can get it.  Microsoft's Windows Movie Maker which is free, does perform that function.

You can also use the latest skype beta to record video messages when a contact is offline, but that may be a pay service after X amount of messages.

Re: Make a video to send to someone on Skype

If your wanting to message somone on Skype it usally means to IM, which means instent message. First you choose a contact you want to IM. Then usally there is a box at the bottom of the screen that says ''send a message''. You click inside that box. Then you type what ever you want in that box. But if you want to IM somone while you are video chating with them there is two icons at the left bottom of the screen. You choose the second one. The box will show up and you do the same thing explained above.
