That video talks about Skype for Windows. You're on Ubuntu. – Andy C. Nov 20 '11 at 9:09
It still doesn't work on Linux, am I right? Just downloaded the latest Skype version on the latest Ubuntu and can't see any opportunity to connect with my facebook account like I can do in the windows version ... :) – user142649 Mar 22 '13 at 21:52

Connecting Skype with Facebook is not (yet) supported in the latest version of Skype for Linux. The video you posted shows using Skype on Microsoft Windows.

Well, there's pretty much different approach. I believe that there are internet messengers that support facebook, skype (with some additional plugins) and some other chat services, I'll present one of them:

Pidgin. apart from supporting bunch of services, by adding several plugins, we can get skype and facebook chat services working too.

This approach is morelike of integrating everything in one. If you don't prioritize this all-in-one technique, you can use skype IM and empathy IM, which supports facebook chat itself.

I think you misunderstood the question. It is not about using the Facebook Chat and Skype in one application, but about logging into Skype using a Facebook account instead of a Skype account, which is currently not possible in Skype for Linux. – Candid Dauth Nov 25 '15 at 20:46
The answer fits the question – Paulius Šukys Nov 26 '15 at 17:10
