Dude wtf do you mean this is virtually impossible!

It is absolutely possible and not in one way but multiple ways, stop feeding these people nonsense.

Really, maybe you can provide detailed instructions ("here") for how one would do that, since I seem to have lost my copy and only have 41 years of Systems programming experience and also have only 7 years of developer programming experience on Skype as well.

Hi, since you seem to know what you are talking about I was wondering if you could answer my question. My computer's antivirus program had run out without my knowledge and I got a virus in which my computer would tell me I was infected and needed to buy a fake antivirus program. Could a virus like this hack into and record my video calls? Thank you.

Anything is possible, when you have malware installed until it is totally removed.

I don't think I used skype much after I got the virus but It couldn't get ahold of old calls either right? Is there any way to know you've been hacked? Thanks.

I personally know of no specific malware that is active that records Skype calls. So, IMHO I would focus on protecting your total system from any malware.
