How come I see scenes from a previous video call in other video calls? 

by on August 15, 2012

Q: Hi,

In Skype, is it normal to have earlier scenes of a video call to appear twice for a second during the later part of the same live streaming webcam video call.

Is this as a result of third party recording the video call? Or is it due to some network issues or other technical issues? I am worried if there is any hacking going on. Technical geniuses please help with this query.

What is the most used and versitle video conference software? 

by on June 21, 2011

Q: Is there a such thing as a video conferencing service that does not require both parties to use the same program?

For example, If I am setting up a skype video conference with someone, they would need skype also, if they did not have skype than we would not be able to video conference.

I need a service that is the most functional, and common.

I hope this is a question in your line of expertise, and I understand If you do not have an answer.
