Skype Command Line Conference

Hello all,

 

I am trying to initiate a conference call through a script but I can't find a solution.

 

There is no problem to initiate a call via the command line with "/callto:myphonenumber" but I don't know the syntax to initiate a conference (2 outgoing calls to 2 different phone numbers). I tried these separators but it doesn't work:

 

/callto:myphonenumber1&myphonenumber2

/callto:myphonenumber1\myphonenumber2

/callto:myphonenumber1/myphonenumber2

/callto:myphonenumber1-myphonenumber2

/callto:myphonenumber1|myphonenumber2

 

does anyone know how I could achieve that? Maybe a skype URL (link) would be the solution?

 

thank you for any help

Re: Skype Command Line Conference

I don't think the /callto: switch supports more than one name or number

to do what you want may require the use of the public API

Thank you! I'll take a look and let you if I managed it. If so, I'd post the code in this thread.

Re: Skype Command Line Conference

there is a separate/dedicated forum for issues related to the API
