Re: skype going universal


 

Well I do use it and I like it.
There is no other way to chat without skype now.
And I am used to it, the desktop interface is mostly ok.
However according to ms skype support it will be a while before they quit using the thing.
I have heard that miranda can interface with skype, and if that is the case if it can run without skype I may try that, and also may uuse it instead.
The only big issue with skype is because I have so many capture devices, vertual and real mics and sound devices sometimes skype has issues finding the right device.
So then it will start, stop all sound and lock the system for 5 minutes while it tries to find out.
I got really angery at this a couple weeks back and thought that I'd just go and bash the computer or reformat it and then smash it but I went into the settings andd what do you know?
Every input device was set on a capture device which is part of a vertual recorder which isn't even supposed to be used and I was able to switch it to the right device and have it stay there by default and although I have updated it its never tried to scan again!

Seems a bit daft to cut any form of existing system that gives more people
access.
I hardly ever use Skype any more. Its about time that Apple released their
system so third party providors could add it to other platforms.

Hi.
Forgot what list this origionally came on but someone was talking about an
app releasefor skype and the phasing out of desktop.
I did a chat with support, who told me that they were not even planning to
release the universal just yet and don't know when that will be.
I asked them to give us a classic interface with same keyboard layout and
no ribbons weather this changes things I don't know but at least I tried.
