I'm currently travelling and using Skype to stay in touch with family. I am also using an Internet plan with limited data and Skype is taking a lot of data from that plan. From my provider history, I can see that it use around 9Mo every minute of Skype calls (with video).
I'm looking for a way to decrease the data usage of my Skype session. I couldn't find anything related to data usage in the Skype options. I was thinking maybe a way of reducing video and/or sound quality or throttling the bandwith used by Skype.
If what it takes is simply to stop using video (incoming and outgoing), I will do that, but I'd rather first know what works and what doesn't.
