Skype Main.db and Tables
Good Morning Folks,
I hope someone can help me with following issues. I am currently conducting a large CP case. I have a number of "calls" that have been made between 2 parties via Skype.
I need to know if the calls made are video calls, whilst the context of the messages would suggest they are, I need to know for certain.
I have 2 tables within the main.db I am interested in. These are the "Calls" and "CallMembers". I have obtained a few pieces of information from that has explained what some of these fields within these tables are however i would like to understand what the values within the following fields are.
Within the CallMembers table, the fields of issue are
status, failurereason, soundlevel (is it a max of 10), videostatus, quality_status and quality_problems
Within the Calls table, the fields of issue are
is_muted i assume this would mean the mic is muted but i get two values 1 or 0 and I cant decipher which one is which
soundlevel as they appear to be all 0 even though I have different values in same calls in the CallMembers table.
current_video_audience. Everywhere that mentions this field show it as the destination of the call so i am assuming that this is a video call, but would like to know if this is a certainty.
Any help or documents would be greatly appreciated
I don't know the answer but it does sound like a prime candidate for doing your own little test. Ideally using the same version (if possible).
Create a blank Skype installation then make a variety of calls/messages/video-calls/group-chats/muted/not muted/muted for some of call/etc (noting down the details of each one, times, length, parties, etc).
Then examine your databases to see what tallies up with what.
At least then you've got justification for any assertion you make.
Yeah that was being tested.
I fired up a few VM's, made few fake outlook accounts. Got the same version of Skype from oldversions.com and it wouldn't let me login with the username passwords which i knew were correct as I could login to the Web Mail.
If you cant login, it wont create the main.db as it has no username / liveID folder to put it in. It let me login on the latest version of Skype, however that doesn't even have a main.db or skype.db for that matter as it all cloud based now.
Has anyone ever had any luck with Microsoft in respect of this type of thing?
Ah I see. How frustrating.
