Skype Conference Call Limit Hacked!

Posted by todd at 2:23 PM on March 6, 2006

I discussed last week how one of my Team members at RawVoice has Skype running on a computer with a AMD processor, and was pissed that he could not do a conference call with more than 5 people. Skype imposed conference call limit to those running AMD processors, well this limit has been hacked. Up to today only those with certain Intel chips in their desktops could do conference calls of more than 5 people.

A hacker who has been giving Apple some grief is now giving the Skype folks some grief, and has a patch available to unlock that AMD limitation. In all likelyhood the patch is illegal but I have already received a large number of e-mail from people telling me they have installed it. [News.com] [Maxxuss.com]
