Make video calls with Skype
Authored by: schaps on Jul 31, '06 09:54:00AM

I did some testing of the Skype video beta this past weekend with my Powerbook G4 1Ghz & iSight camera, connected to a friend on brand new MBP in a different city.

Our observations:
Skype video is A LOT choppier than iChat video, but the sound quality is markedly better. We'd like to find a way to use just the video of iChat paired with the audio of Skype.

Now reading here that Skype doesn't work (alledgedly) with an iSight camera, perhaps the Powerbook doesn't have the processing power to make the video quality better. Still, a win for iChat.
