Hi all,

I am running Freebsd 10.2 amd64 on a desktop, and I would need to use
either Skype or Google Hangout for work. By perusing the web and the
mail lists, it seems that neither Hangout nor Skype work anymore on
FreeBSD.  So, I installed Windows 7 in VirtualBox to get around this,
only to find out that in VirtualBox *USB* doesn't work on FreeBSD
hosts (and I have a USB webcam, which works in FreeBSD, as tested via
pwcview).

Does anybody know of a solution short of dual-booting to Windows? I am
pretty positive that asking all colleagues to install uTox, ekiga,
etc. on their various systems is not going to be a successful
strategy.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion

giuseppe
