Skype adds video with Skype 2.0 - IT Week

Skype has released Skype v2 (beta) which introduces video capability as well as supporting moods and indicating the time zone of the person you're trying to call.

Though video calling can be useful, mainly it's a gimmick and uses more bandwidth.

If they're using the same P2P methods for video as well as audio, then anyone on non-NATed connections will get even more of their bandwidth used as they become a super-node for other users who are NAT'ed or behind agressive firewalls.
