Skype Security Control

This is a standard security dialog that Skype shows for all third party applications that use Skype. It is designed to protect you from unauthorised software accessing your Skype application. 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.

6. On completion of the wizard, the VodBurner window will be displayed. If you have any questions, contact us.

    all of these instructions are for a Windows OS, am I missing the instructions for Mac? I can’t get it to connect to my skype and I’m sure it has to do with allowing access but I can’t figure out how to do that since all the directions are for Windows.

      Hi Megan,

      Update 11th August, 2014 – Microsoft / Skype have now withdrawn support for SkypeKit – the technology we used to build VodBurner for Mac. As a result of this, you can no longer sign-in to VodBurner for Mac unfortunately. Note: our Windows version of Mac is not affected. There is a petition to get Microsoft to reconsider their decision, along with more details about the situation at

      We apologise to all our VodBurner for Mac fans.

    Your programme is amazing. So simple to install and so easy to use.
    What is more – you provide instructions and advice.
    After weeks of failure with an alternative system I was able to video record my grand-daughter at the first attempt tonight. Brilliant.
    Will buy full license at end of trial period.
