    Skype Video over IP - The New VOIP

    "Voip Watch reports that a new plug-in tool called "video4skype" has emerged. According to Spontania, Skype users will be able to "experience spontaneous high-quality video communication as easy as placing a voice call."

    We knew video over ip would be the new VOIP, and it'll be exciting to see what's next as Skype develops more multi-media communication tools. Spontania's video4skype may be one of the first with video for skype, but there will be others to come since this is only the beginning of Internet protocol video communications.

    With Skype you can make free calls over the Internet. Skype the whole world can talk for free"

      ^ and why's that PD? that's what we need in this forum... experiential narratives to validate and/or disprove technology claims - just saying it sux doesn't mean much!

        Would the fellowing reason's be sufficient

        Skype sux because:
        -No live customer support.
        -Payments in Euro, therefor it cost more........if dollar is on downfall.
        -Reasonably unreliable Network.
        -QoS issues related to peer-to-peer.

          I would agree with kingshah, I'd rather use yahoo vc than skype. It loses connection in every 2 minutes and sometimes doesn't even connect.

              I have been contemplating on converting my regular phone line into VoIP through AT&T or Vonage. If anyone has any experience using it, how is the voice clarity compared to regular phone lines?

                  Zainman, there's already soft-phones available for PocketPC, Windows, Linux and Mac (SJPhone by sjlabs.com) and I'm sure there's something similar available for Palm OS as well. With that phone software all you need is a wifi connection (they are claiming that it works over GRS as well but I haven't tested that). Then you can subscribe to any of the VoIP service like Vonage or Stanaphone etc, and use it to make any and all calls.

                  BTW the BTPhone is supposed to be out in a few weeks. I'll be putting up another thread on that later today.
