Skype Video Conferencing Problems? Try Google Chat's Video and Voice Plug-in

by J. Robert Burgoyne — last modified Apr 28, 2011 09:10 PM

I have used Skype for years to have video conferences with people in Asia. For unknown reasons, Skype's video and audio quality have degraded significantly for me in recent months, to the point that it's unusable. I sought out alternatives, and my current solution is Google Chat's video and voice plug-in.

Google Chat's voice and video plug-in does not have the slow video, audio dropout, and dropped call problems I have been recently experiencing with Skype. If you're encountering similar video conferencing problems with Skype, give Google Chat's video and voice plug-in a try. 

Skype, what's going on?
