Skype – Free & Paid Video & Audio Calls

if you haven't used Skype or given it a miss for a while why not try it again.

The video has been vastly improved and is much larger now ( 640 x 480 pixels ) from the older versions and the feature I like is that you can get 9 people in a conference call.

Remember with a broadband connection you will also get excellent sound quality and calling from computer to computer is free.

My big tip though is to use a usb headphone microphone for improved quality.

My favorite is the Plantronics , and by using the USB mic you will notice a difference in quality.

For video try any of the Logitech video cameras.

Remember though a broadband connection works best and the quicker your connection and the person you are calling the better.

Skype is a video & audio calling solution from your computer.

There are versions for Apple and Windows.

With Skype you can create an account and call other computer users who have a Skype account.

Paying for a Skype account allows you to call landlines and mobiles.

The use of a usb headphone microphone will improve the quality of the call.

Remember though , a good broadband connection works best and the quicker your connection and the person you are calling ,the better.
