I was wondering if there was any way to save the video messages I get from friends/family onto my computer? I would like to look back on them or have an easier access to them if I need to remember somehing from them!
Download and Run SQLite Database Browser
Open the main.db file with it.
Click Browse Data >> Change the drop down option for the Table: to VideoMessages.
Under vod path, you will see the link. Copy / Paste this link to your browsers address bar.
I think you have explained it(tamim's solution) very well.. I was trying for this for two days, and I accidently stumped in to the information of "playing the video in the skype". Once I paused while playing the video, then every thing fit into space. Now I had saved all my videos into my computer.
There is a suggestion I would like to make. Using "torchbrowser" is much better for downloading videos from the page.
Actually saving Video messages to a file works best with Firefox:
In fact, you can also do this using the standard Windows Media Player 12.

You can save Skype video message very easily using Evaer as follows:
1, Enable the option “Enable stream acceleration mode” and “Do not use the Skype provide audio stream” at your Evaer menu “Tools>Options”>”Advanced”tab.
2, Please restart your Evaer and Skype for the acceleration mode to take effect.
3, Click the video message on your Skype and Evaer will change the “Start recording” button to enable status. click the “Start recording” button to save your Skype video message. By default, it will record your Skype video message into a MP4 movie file on your PC.

Before opening the main.db file in SQLite Database Browser, you need to play the video message in your Skype program. The links to video messages are not static and change every time the message is replayed.
Suggestion above worked out so well!
Just to add, you will need to extract the file to open it.
also once you have opened it and cannot access your appdata or roaming just type on the browser
Lastly the link that is in the Vod can be opened by firefox, doesn't work on my other explorer
