Skype Me

If you have been following along with previous posts you know that Skype is the most popular international instant messaging client and it is the closest thing to a multi-media, multi-platform universal calling client.

Skype Universal Calling Client (Windows)

Skype 4.0 for Windows

Skype has lots of features (some examples listed below) and the Mac, Windows, and Linux client software is updated regularly.

Skype is also developing integrated screensharing in the latest beta software for Mac. Yugma SE (Skype Edition) is an addon that provides multi-platform screensharing.

All these features are free.

SkypeOut calls from the users computer to regular phones costs $29.50 per year for unlimited Canada and US calling and it includes voicemail.
A skype number and SkypeIn capability is also a chargeable feature for receiving calls but unfortunately it is not available in Canada.

Skype has been featured regularly on the Oprah show to allow remote guests to participate in video calls from their home or business. Many podcasters use Skype to conduct and record interviews with people in other parts of the world.
One example of audio/video recorder software is the ecamm Skype recorder for Mac. Not to leave Windows users out, read about a free skype audio call recorder.

The popularity of Skype is sure to get a boost with the release today (in the US) of Skype for iPhone.
A summary of Skype for iPhone news is on the iPhone Canada (iphoneca) site. There is also the bad news that skype for iphone may not be available in Canada until some unspecified patent licensing issues get resolved.

A feature that doesn’t appear to be very well known is the availability of free larger scale conference calling for meetings also known as skypecasting

    I tape phone interviews over a land line using a Telos One hybrid. I need to be able to have two lines with 7kHz audio frequency response (when accessible at the opposite end of the line). One VOIP account with two numbers would do this if the ATA has two RJ-11’s but that would only give me two lines with 3kHz audio response. Are there any multi-line VOIP telephone sets with caller-only output signals? Is the lone means to do this, to run two computers with Skype and take the sound card outs from each into isolated mixer channels?
