Yes. This has changed now. Video messages are now saved in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Skype\<skype name>\media_messaging\media_cache_v2\ folder. Just look for files with .mp4 extension.

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?
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?
I tried to send a message to my laptop account and got the address.
And I found frames under resources, but I can't find out "flvs-play" resource reference,
Please tell me what should i do with it~

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