Getting skype audio integration into Asterisk doesn't seem to be a problem and probably worth the cost of the commercial solution if that's all you want.  In my case, I want video-enabled skype-to-skype calling from a media center.  Looking at the skype API for linux, it still seems that GET / SET VIDEO_IN interface is still missing.  Looks like this needs to wait until the API is more complete which is inevitable when the open-source the client.

In the time spent waiting for the video interface, you could get the audio and contacts interfaces working for you...  I'm guessing there is probably quite a bit of work in those areas to begin with...

Isn't Telepathy/Empathy (http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/wiki/) the right solution for voip, voice, chat and video?

Guys, are you just not getting that DCE is a messaging system?

You can convert one message, to another.

You can use DCE to control and signal pieces that form the overall solution.

THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE.

DCE devices can be written to talk to any messaging system, or stack, and to interact with them, and to send the results back, to be placed in datagrids, arrays, and variables, to present to the user interface.

Come on guys,

THINK.
