Has anyone successfully set up video conferencing on skype?
A teacher at my school wishes for me to set it up, which I would attempt
But the LEA has blocked all Skype sites! Idiots.
Is skype allowed out through the proxy?
Any setup guides very welcome guys, Thanks
I don't know the exact details of Skype's protocol, but I do seem to remember them being quite proud of the way it would get through a large number of proxies and firewalls. Skype was designed with home ADSL/cable users in mind, with both ends of the connection having a NAT firewall, so there's some cunningness involved in there somewhere to work around that - try installing the Skype client and see what happens.
For web cams, I've found the £10 Currys own-brand device to be pretty good. Not their £8 one, you want the USB one with built-in microphone. It just plugs in and works on Windows, no driver needed.
