Leopard Updates: Skype Beta 1


This one is for Joe!

Skype joins the Leopard party

Filed under: , ,

If you’re a Leopard-using Skype lover, you’ve been without the quintessential Voice over IP service since the Skype Mac blog announced there were a few issues with Skype on Leopard last month. However, Skype has released a new version of their Mac client which not only fixes these Leopard niggles, but also adds a shiny new feature to the fold: VGA (640×480) video is now enabled by default, and at 25 frames per second too – meaning that cross-platform video chats just got more detailed.

Of course, there is just one downside: the current Leopard-compatible version is still a beta, so if you’re scared of pre-release software, then this isn’t for you. If you fancy living life on the wild side, so to speak, then the 34MB download is available from the Skype for Mac site.

    When I saw the announcement of leopard fixes a few days ago, it puzzled me since I had just successfully used skype the night before for my kids’ regular video chat with the grandparents. I apparently never ran into those “issues”.
