There were some opening glitches when I tried to add everyone at once, but then I went back to one person and added new people one or two at a time and we got up to 9 or 10 people at once (maximum of 8 broadcasting video, I think). We could have gone higher I think if more people had been ready to join.
Great test, thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to this stuff moving out of beta.
It would be nice if vSkype could support a full contact list being passed to it via a file, so that we could create some way of easily starting a video conference from within Moodle.
Couple of questions.
- Whose computer acted as the "server" for this discussion. It is my understanding that with vSkype one of the computer actually acts like a server for the other connections.
- Is this correct?
- If It is correct, did the person with the "server" computer have any unforeseen or special problems?
- Was the group able to use the whiteboard without any problems? [PowerPoint / Drawing?]
Thanks in advance for any and all responses.
I know it can do window/application sharing but I didn't see a whiteboard. I am playing again tonight so will look at it then.
I would be interested in the up/down internet speed of whoever was the server.
vSkype doesn't have a whiteboard, but you can share your screen or any window. This feature worked very well.
It was nice to see you 'live' in the conference.

I have a couple of screenshots for you too:
its all gobbledegook to me, but the clever guys here would perhaps know how to construct a .vif file to import , from looking at an export . (here is a part of one export )
