Skype adds support for Mac OS X

As usual, thanks for the useful hint.

Have downloaded the program and installed it very easily and asked a windozer friend to do the same. It looks all very nice with a friendly interface though, voice connection is very poor and scatty.

IMHO, iVisit performs much much better. Did you ever try it?

In the windows-version full-duplex seems to be disabled as default, which reduces quality a lot. The following key enables it and I didnt find any side-effects yet:


from 0 to 1

Marius: strange, I don't have this key in my registry. It ends with "General"... Did you add the key AEC on your own?

Definitely a beta, but usable. Voice quality is, as Pieter says, 'scatty', and seems to degrade over time (memory leaks?), and conference calling is missing in the Mac version. Otherwise, it seems feature-complete.

It has a potential to replace AIM for me. Secure IM, file transfer, presence information, voice calls.

My reg key was already set to '1', but could be set by the beta installs.
