Better, cheaper ways to video conference

James Corbett’s Vizitant blog alerted me to two interesting moves by Skype:

Skype audio is a configurable option in realXtend. It can’t currently be used to call people not in-world, but the potential is clearly there. Being able to bring an out-of-world participant into a team meeting in the virtual world via Skype video would be a killer application, especially if the reverse were possible – relaying the virtual world back to Skype. The recently added RTT (render to texture) camera feature in realXtend 0.31 might be the place to integrate a video capture hook to enable virtual world video to Skype.
