Summary: I REALLY like the concept of this camera and purchased it despite a number of questionable reviews, but unfortunately it doesn't really live up to the hopes I had for it. There are a few fundamental issues that are a bit disappointing in this product. I seriously considered returning it. Although I will keep it, I probably wouldn't have purchased it had I known then what I know now.
Summary: Panasonic TY-CC10W Skype-Enabled Camera I purchased this camera for use with a 2010 Panasonic/Viera 50" Plasma TV. While connection just required use of a USB port, the instructions left out a few important details, and I had to trial and error several things before getting close to getting the camera to work. Skype is a Viera offering, so I only had to open an account. My expectation of Skype to Skype, was naive and based on my PC experience with Skype.
Summary: Similar to what other people say, my relatives have the wonderful Asus Skype device which is a one piece Skype device that supports service upgrades. I believe that device runs on Linux and therein apparently lies the problem. It's audio only with that device even with the most current software. There really is no excuse for not offering full Skype compatibility and there is nowhere it is revealed that is a defect in the device.
