Just a note: If youare running an old version of the archos 101 firmware, you will be able to load but will not have will be connection will work fine.


When I bought my tablet it had an older version of firmware on it and I had this problem.


I had to manually update the firmware (not thru the "update firmware" function of the tablet -- that didnt work).  The next to the newest firmware update 9I think it is 4.65??) fixed the black video box problem.


Now, Skype does work fine.

The first thing you need to do is go to AppsLib and download Arctools 0.50 and download the default Apps & market. This will give you Market for android, now serch and download Skype from Market. It should work good for you..

I dont know why skype is not allowing us to use there service on archos 101 tablet. Its like the big secret being kept from us on how to get skype downloads. Skype should know that archos is not connecting with the android market and we need an alternative download method! Please skype help us to use your service by making your software available for us direct from your home site or an alternate to the reg android market!
