Which version of Skype do you have installed?
Installation instructions for Skype version 4.0 & 4.2 or later.
Skype should show an “Allow access” button near the top right hand side of the main Skype window. Click it to allow VodBurner to connect to Skype. (NOTE: If the right-hand panel is hidden in your Skype, Skype will instead pop up a separate window for you to allow access).
If you don’t see the button, go to Tools > Options > Advanced and click “Manage other programs access to Skype” near the bottom of the page. If VodBurner appears in the list, click it and click the “Change” button to alter permissions.
If VodBurner is not in the list, reboot your PC and try again.
If you still don’t see it, it is possible that security software is getting in the way. For example, Auslogics has an option to disable the Skype public API. Turning this option off (or similar options in other products) should resolve the issue.
b. The Skype Client window will appear. Click on the text VodBurner.exe.
c. The Skype security window will appear (as pictured below). Select the Allow this program to use Skype option and click OK.
Installation instructions for Skype version 3.6 or earlier.
When VodBurner connects to Skype for the first time, you will see a standard security dialog that Skype shows for all third party applications that use Skype. It is designed to stop unauthorised software accessing Skype. You must click one of the “Allow…” options in order for VodBurner to operate. If you accidentally click OK before setting the option correctly, you can follow these instructions to allow VodBurner to access Skype.
