Hey,

 

I am working on a project using skype API and i want to interface kinect for windows sdk to communicate with skype, as there is no support for kinect in skype some guys http://www.kinectdevs.com/forums/kinect-virtual-camera-kinect-webcam-f17/kinect-virtual-camera-for-windows-released-t5.html

 

made their own support using openNI but it doesnot support windows sdk.

 

so are you planning to release the support anytime soon or is there anything i could do to enable the kinect for skype, like the direcshow filters ?
