Also looking for Skype call. some one it apears to be working on it for a DIFFERENT XBMC than what I have.

I have the Kodi v14

I have netflix and Pandora, and a movie list but not fully satisfied.

Is skype an option at this point?
I am also looking for a UtraViolet or Vudo or another shareable kind of addon that will comulicate with the online list of movies I legally own. =D

While a proper Skype Addon is not developed, you may be interested in my simple Windows AutoHotKey script.
With it you can choose any three keys on your remote to:

1. Answer a Skype call with video
2. Terminate a Skype call
3. Make a Skype (group) call with video [select contact(s) and Jump to Conversation]

While the script is not integrated on Kodi, and does not display a pop-up for an incoming call, I believe it provides a minimum set of actions to interact with Skype using your remote.

Please do:
- enable Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Shortcuts -> Activate Shortcuts box in Skype menu
- edit script and change the trigger keys to whatever maps best for you remote
- install AutoHotKey and compile AutoHotKeys.ahk file by double-clicking on it.

AutoHotKeys.ahk file (write it to your Windows Startup folder):

Code:
#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

; Answer Skype call with video
!Numpad5::  ; ORtek VRC-1100 '#' button
  KeyWait Alt
WinActivate, ahk_exe Skype.exe
#IfWinActive ahk_exe Skype.exe ahk_class tSkMainForm
  Send ^!{PgUp}
#IfWinActive
Return

; Terminate Skype call
^r::  ; ORtek VRC-1100 'Record' button
  KeyWait Ctrl
WinActivate, ahk_exe Skype.exe
#IfWinActive ahk_exe Skype.exe ahk_class tSkMainForm
  Send !{PgDn}
  WinMinimize, ahk_exe Skype.exe  ; Minimize Skype
#IfWinActive
Return

; Make Skype group call with video
^t::  ; ORtek VRC-1100 'Live' button
  KeyWait Ctrl
if !WinExist("ahk_exe Skype.exe")
{
  RegRead, SkypePath, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Skype\Phone, SkypePath
  Run, %SkypePath%
  WinWait, ahk_exe Skype.exe
}
WinActivate, ahk_exe Skype.exe
#IfWinActive ahk_exe Skype.exe ahk_class tSkMainForm
  Send ^n ; Show new group window (substitute ^n for the equivalent 'Create New Group' shortcut of your language)
  WinWait, ahk_class TAddContactsPopup, , 20
  if ErrorLevel
  {
    MsgBox, New group call popup failed to show.
    return
  }
  WinActivate, ahk_class TAddContactsPopup,
  WinWaitClose, ahk_class TAddContactsPopup,
  Send ^+q ; Make video call to group
#IfWinActive
Return

Thanks for this script.

I made some adjustements
- to use with my MCE remote
- so that it works with french Skype's version
- added the switch to full screen.

Code:
#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

; Answer Skype call with video
SC005::  ; Harmony one '4' button
  KeyWait Alt
WinActivate, ahk_exe Skype.exe
#IfWinActive ahk_exe Skype.exe ahk_class tSkMainForm
  Send ^!{PgUp} ; answer
  Sleep 1000
  Send !{enter} ; fullscreen
#IfWinActive  
Return

; Terminate Skype call
SC00A::   ; harmony one '9' button
  KeyWait Ctrl
WinActivate, ahk_exe Skype.exe
#IfWinActive ahk_exe Skype.exe ahk_class tSkMainForm
  Send !{PgDn} ; hang up
  WinMinimize, ahk_exe Skype.exe  ; Minimize Skype
#IfWinActive
Return

; Make Skype group call with video
SC003::   ; harmony one '2' button
  KeyWait Ctrl
if !WinExist("ahk_exe Skype.exe")
{
  RegRead, SkypePath, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Skype\Phone, SkypePath
  Run, %SkypePath%
  WinWait, ahk_exe Skype.exe
}
WinActivate, ahk_exe Skype.exe
#IfWinActive ahk_exe Skype.exe ahk_class tSkMainForm
  Send ^n ; Show new group window (substitute ^n for the equivalent 'Create New Group' shortcut of your language)
  WinWait, ahk_class TAddContactsPopup, , 20
  if ErrorLevel
  {
    MsgBox, New group call popup failed to show.
    return
  }
  WinActivate, ahk_class TAddContactsPopup,
  WinWaitClose, ahk_class TAddContactsPopup,
  Send ^+r ; Make video call to group (would be ^+q with Skype in english)
  Sleep 1000
  Send !{enter} ; fullscreen
#IfWinActive
Return
