Skype





zerodegree
SKype is a very good VOIP Client, I am using it for last 2 months. I use it to make PC to PC call to my friends. Skype is free and anyone can use it to make PC2PC call for free. Skype has also another sevice through which someone can make PC2Phone Calls, but its chargable.
For More information vist:

I used to have Skype and used it to talk with my friends from oversea. But that was pre-Yahoo 7.0. Now Yahoo has the improved calling feature, I dont think I'd be going back to Skype anytime soon (unless they offer free pc2phone hehehe)

I used skype to talk to some friends on the net.

I've heared you can also use for calling someone on the phone...

But indeed you have to pay... First you need to add money into your account then when you talk, you use that money.

Recently, they had some promotion offers, and if you clicked something, it gave to your account some number of cents. I clicked some of those, and I now have few $ in my account.. Hehehe Razz

I'm going to use them sometime, to see how it's like Smile

yup....skype gives you 10 minutes talktime for SkypeOut a few times in a month i think...just check their website everyday and you might be able to get it.

i do not use skype any more. Confused i more use msn, mIRC stuff like that. and NetMeeting. skype makes your pc slow when you are gaming and stuff.

totally disagree with you there, i used skype 6 month while playing onlinegames without any problems. to be honest i never josted a conference during that time, because i knew it would let my ping explode.

then again skype isnt meant for gaming. it's my replace for a phone - why pay for longdistancecalls when all my friends are online anyway?

some people even canceled their phone because skype-in works for them

never got vskype to work, which would be a great plugin - if only it was ported to linux

Yea I don't think there is another free VOIP program out there better then skype, you can even use skype over dialup and it sounds just like your talking to someone over the phone. It is much cheaper to use skype and buy some Skypeout credits then to buy a calling card. I don't even have long distance service at my house any more I just use skype to call long distance and I have saved a lot of money $$$$.

I use skype too, mostly as a chat/voip program or to save on long-distance phone calls. I even thought of buying a real phone number for it, but those 30$/year are too expensive IMO, for just those few phone calls I might get. And I'm not 100% of the time online.

Skype has a limitation on the number of people in a meeting. I think the normal version is limited to 8.

As well for the FPS or multiplayer who need a good transfert of data, Skype use way too much compared to TeamSpeak or Ventrilo.

hi there...

Skype is a great one.....really... i use it for my oversea friends ...

but for gaming i could test TeamSpeak and for me .... it's the best if you find a server.... or if you can make one...

have a look there (on the right.... the quick download section Wink)

a couple of my friends use skype as well and we sometimes jam on skype. the sound quality is soooo goooood!

Skype rocks!!!

Cheers!

Yes, Skype is good... but even I noticed a little bit of slowing down in my PC when I was using it. But that's most likely because my PC is stone-age... 533MHz Celeron with 15 GB HDD, 128 MB RAM, of which about only 60% of system resources are free. Very Happy

I use skype everyday and I like it more than msn itself, but unfortunately it hasn't video support.
skype has the advantage of giving us better audio quality and with less "noise" and stops when talking to each other. But it's sad that not everyone wants to try skype... If they tried skype many would leave msn behind...
mengshi200
it's strange that when i use skype voice is not fluency though i also like it.because msn also exist same problem.

Hey Guys, Google talk is a of days old now, released I think it was released on Augs 24th. It maybe Skype's new competitor. I haven't tried it with voice yet since I can't find my mic. So I've only used it as the IM client. Just type it in google.

skype has really good sound quality. personally i wouldn't mind paying for the charge to call PC 2 phone abroad if the quality of sound is that good.
