Festoon (previously known as vSkype) had created a third party add-on that would allow you to use Skype for video conferencing.
Skype then launched its own free video conferencing service; however, this only allowed one-on-one video calls and did not support multiple users.
Festoon on the other hand supported up to 200 people for video conferencing. Unfortunately Festoon (festooninc.com) has now completely disappeared leaving no multi-party video conferencing option for Skype.
Any Hope for Skype Video Conferencing?
Unless Festoon comes back then I guess we’re left hoping that Skype extends it’s one-on-one video calling service to allow multi-party video conference calls.
Other than that there is one Skype plugin active called video4im.com (previously Video4skype). This free video calling software from Dialcom doesn’t support multiple simultaneous users so you may as well just use Skype Free video calling.
However, Dialcom do say that multi-party video conferencing is in the work.
