About the Skype for Mac Flash video bug
Some of you have reported an incompatibility between the current version of Skype for Mac and the Adobe Flash plugin, which prevented you from using your webcam with Flash.
We mistakenly identified this as occurring ‘by design’ – which was incorrect, and we apologise for the confusion caused.
The incompatibility is indeed a bug. We’ve identified the cause, and are working on a fix. We hope to release an update to Skype for Mac soon which should resolve the problem.
