Question about Skype IM
My daughter has vista with skype connected, and webcam.We have windows 2003 and have skype connected,and we have satillite server.When we are connected to each other,her end the voice and picture are very clear,but our end the picture we receive of her on the screen, is very low pixels, and there is about 2 to 3 second voice delay which varies from very loud and clear to inaudible. Is there any way this can be improved please?
The problem is lack of bandwith of the receiving signal from your daughter. The Skype server is located in the UK and all video and audio data signals go to and from the Skype UK server before it goes to you and your daughter. This lack of bandwith causes the video image to break up and a delays in audio just like a weak high definition signals to your digital television.
You can see your own video and hear your own audio from your WEB cam clearly, because the video and audio data does not have to go to the UK and back again, also your satillite connection is probably not as fast as a cable broadband connection. Your daughter may also experiencing the same video and audio problems.
Video data contains a lot more information than the audio data. Therefore there are a couple of things you can do to improve the situation :-
Get your daughter to and possible you as well (if she is also experiencing break up of video and audio), to reduce the video image size from 640X480 to 320X240 resolution.
If the video is still a problem then turn off the video all together and only communicate by audio, this will reduce the amount of data being transmitted and should give you a clear/clean audio.
