I want to know how to do this, too. I have been unable to find an answer to this in the Skype help area.

Re: Download a video message

Hey guys!

 

The easiest way is to:

  1. Open the video in Google Chrome. Enter the Code (in one of the most dramatic prompts know to man, "it is time") and click play.
  2. Once the video is well underway in playing, press F12 to bring up the Developer pane. Under "Frames" click on the header with a jumble of letters and numbers, then scroll down to XHR.
  3. Right click the "flvs-play" resource reference, then either "Open link in new tab" or "Copy link location".
  4. Press CTRL+S then save that file to whatever name you want. Before clicking OK, add the suffix ".flv" ("add that to the end of the name" is what I am trying to say). 

You now have a usable file. Hooray. The other methods still work, this is simply MUCH EASIER. Hope I helped!

Re: Download a video message

Oh great! I'm really happy to find that there is a way. I've been sending videos of our newborn son to the grandmother abroad, and just realized how great it would be to keep these little memories. But I couldn't find "Frames"? I see ; Elements, Resources, Network, Sources, Timeline, Profiles, Audits, Console and then some other options on the lower right hand side. Can someone please help me to the next step?

Re: Download a video message

I found Frames and the header of letters and numbers under the Resources tab but I cannot find XHR anywhere. Can anyone tell me where to go from here or if I'm on the right track?

 

Thank you.

amethyst306,

 

You can use FVD Video Downloader extension for Chrome.

Open the Video message in Chrome, enter the code and download it. You can play the downloaded file with VLC media player.
