Skype + Raspberry pi

Tue Oct 17, 2017 9:15 am

I want to connect a webcam to raspberry and using skype on it.
Since there isn't skype for smart TV nowaday, i want to use skype on my tv with raspberry.
Is there a possibility?
I would to use it with a remote control.

The de-facto Raspbian Stretch Operating System includes Chromium Web Browser, so Skype for Web may be worth trying ??

yes it's an idea, but it's so inconvenient because i want to use on the tv. SO, using the remote controller with Cromium it's a long shot.

If you are connecting to your TV via HDMi then maybe ??

yes, i only need to find a version of skype "simple"(interactively) to use. Because this operation , while i'm using the mouse pointer, is a bit cumbersome. I need to simplify as much as possible.
