Skype Issues

i seem to be having issues with skype since installing gigapower.  i get dropoffs in voice and audio every 30 seconds or so.  speedtests look good, and do not report any packet loss.  Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this.

Re: Skype Issues

Just to update for future googlers.


Turns out the problem was with my beta AMD video card drivers.  The gigapower speed was negotiating an HD stream with my coworkers and the beta drivers were not rendering correctly.  Before gigapower, skype didn't negotiate a high enough bitrate for the bug to be noticed.

I had assumed it was an issue with the internet, but it wasn't
