Multimedia, AV In a blog post, John Luther, the Project Manager of Google's WebM Project, has announced that Skype now supports the VP8 codec. The VP8 support is already available for Windows users who are using Skype 5.5. VP8 will be used to encode and decode the Skype video call if both the caller and receiver have clients that support the codec.

Excellent call quality, only outdone by google talk, but the user interface is horrible. Super sized widgets with overblown fonts, looks like effing Gnome! And now i upgraded to 5.5 it's even worse.. and the chat scrolling stopped working .. how can companies release such crap? .. oh but it's free, you can't expect any quality fr .. stfu!!
