FAQ

Why doesn't SkypeWeb for Miranda open chats created earlier with the native Skype client? Skype client still opens those chats correctly.
There are two kinds of chat in Skype: P2P chats and new ones created on Microsoft servers. Skype client works with both of them. SkypeWeb doesn't support P2P chats which were created quite a long time ago or with Skype of old versions.
The latest Skype client creates chats compatible with SkypeWeb.
To tell the type of your chat use command /get name in Skype client. Send it as message in chat and it will return the chat's name:
  1. "name=#username$***" means P2P chat
  2. "name=19:***@thread.skype" means cloud chat
