Skype to blog calls

That’s the title of this post on SkypeJournal and I have to admit I was a little confused at first, but reading the post cleared things up:

What's a Skype to blog call? Well don't you want your blog to capture voice comments from readers? I certainly do.

So how do you get it to work?  Essentially you have the Comment link force an interaction with the Skype API and divert the call to a program called Pamela, which records the call and returns a URL that links through to recording.

Sounds a little complicated and definitely sounds like it won’t work unless your blog lives on a server you control, but the concept is really interesting.

This is not the way. Skype seems going to the wrong way when it setup the basic protocol. I read this:

Vbuzzer is challenging the proprietary protocol many VoIP companies are using which has left users vulnerable to security holes, virus attack, memory leaks, abnormal port activities and paying for inferior quality.

That't the truth. Skype use very un-compatible way to do even it's core business, it'll not going long. For web, use W3C's standard is the best and if sound is important, new standard will coming, every browser will support automatically. Do skype way is just waste of time.
