When following the steps in the ""Adding Skype Calls with Audio/Video return article, I am able to get through step 4, but when attempting to recognize the NDI Camera in Skype, Skype only sees my hardware cameras, and NDI is not an option. Any idea where I should look?
I'm using Windows 10 and the latest VMIx, NDI TOols and Skype Desktop app, all installed yesterday.

"How do I use NDI on Skype for Windows 10 (version 14)?
When using NDI on Skype for Windows 10 (version 14), the NDI application will need to be running on a separate machine than Skype for Windows 10 (version 14) on the same network. "

My understanding was that the primary expected use case for NDI with Skype was providing an NDI output feed from a Skype call, while using Skype with a traditional webcam.

I interpret the above answer to indicate that you may use an NDI source as a camera, but only if that source is not being produced by the local machine.

Skype will provide an NDI output but CANNOT receive an NDI input regardless of where it comes from. So, your vMix NDI output of a camera or audio will not show up as a possible source in Skype as an input.

Your Skype NDI output WILL show as a NDI source in vMix so long as your vMix PC is on the same network as your Skype PC (or could be same PC).

Hope this clears this up.

Maybe this explanation can help:

Skype in vMix
