This is great news:
Techcrunch » Blog Archive » Skype Video For Macs Launches Today:It was just a week or so ago that I was able, for the first time, to try video calling via Apple’s iChat. I don’t have a FireWire iSight camera but I was able to use an old Phillips TuoCam which I bought 5 years ago (and almost never used!). A US$ 10 utility called iChatUSBCam makes that possible.
Skype is launching Skype Video for Macs today (look for version 2.0 on this download page). Skype Video for Windows has been available since last December.
It was a weird experience. I was talking to a friend in Berlin who is a regular video iChater.
But almost no one I know is on iChat! Everyone is on Skype. Can’t wait to try out the video calls on it.
