A group of users in my office would like to use Skype for some regular meetings when they are out of the office. Is there a hard limit to how many users can be in a group video call with the Basic (not Premium) version of Skype?
None of the information on Skype's website is 100% clear.
lists what hardware specifications are recommended for 3, 5 or 7 user group video chats
mentions a possible issue when a tenth user enters a group video call
describes Skype's fair use policy for am ount of time spent on calls
states that the business version can have up to 250 users in a group video conference
none of what I'm finding shows a hard number for how many users can be in a Skype group video conference while using the free version.
Does anyone have any more information? It's looking like it may be a soft limit based on each users system hardware and the bandwidth of all the users.
