Nobody wants to talk about SILK?! (Skype)

Postby biglittledragoon » Mon Mar 09, 2009 10:26 am

Hi,

I'm a little bit surprised. Users are always complaining about A/V or Skype support, but I see nobody asking about SILK, the new Skype audio codec, available for third party use on a royalty free basis.

So, I do it. :mrgreen:

Bye,

BLD

Reading the subject, I thought this was about Silk by unsanity, which allows for font customization.

Anyway, I believe that the Adium team has said that they'd do audio/video for all IM services, not just one at a time. Though I doubt we'll see audio/video soon.

Right, title changed. ;)

Before that, it was virtually impossible to integrate Skype in Adium. This codec is a huge change.

As I don't really care about A/V, it was more to set the cat among the pigeons (ducks). :P

A/V will come, we just have to be patient.

It's probably not compatible with GPL, so it can't be used anyways.

As I don't have the licence nor the SDK, it's what I guess too. Skype isn't generally "GPL compliant".

But, if the SDK is well made and documented, it might be possible to develop a plugin for Adium (someone in the room said "I will do it, Sir!"???).

As said, my purpose is to play with ideas, as I was surprised that no one asked about it.
