As Skype now has a API for developing Plugins,
http://share.skype.com/directory/

is there any Kazaa plugin to download from kazaa ?

http://sourceforge.net/projects/kceasy
kc easy versin 0.11 had the kazaa p2p code in.

I'm not a Skype user, but I doubt its setup for filesharing plugins. Its a talking program not a filesharing program.

Even if they did add a filesharing mod, I don't think it'd be Fasttrack. They'd have to pay off Sharman or risk a lawsuit. Plus Fasttrack sucks.

And if a filesharing plugin did show up, I'm sure there'd be an article on it.

Funny, I'd have assumed the exact opposite: that FastTrack would be the first choice of filesharing for Skype, seeing as how it's the same financiers (Niklas Zennstrom et al.) and IIRC the same coders (Blue Moon in Estonia) who created Skype as created Kazaa/FastTrack.

I doubt that eBay would encourage file sharing since they wouldn't profit from it. Ever since eBay acquired Skype they seem to be focusing on crappy stuff like custom ringtones.

Wrong homey, they use the same peer to peer technology that kazza used. Same programmers.

You talk to much sometimes.

Yeah but Skype isn't made to be a fileshareing program! its a "talk-program" yes you can send files like on every chat client. So msn, Yahoo and Icq are fileshareings programs? :wink:

Prove it.
Prove that a node on the Skype network could do the job of a FastTrack node.

They share a similar network topolology. Then again, FastTrack is based on Gnutella, so maybe LimeWire is like Skype?

Well let me say it would be very unwise for this to be true.

1) They said. i.e the writers of skype that it contains no kazaa code. (in its current version)

2) The evil Meg Whitman ceo of ebay wants nothing to do with file trading. ebays so anal.
The wont let you pay for porn with paypal, hell they wont even let you sleep in your car when your on break over at ebay.

3) skype is currently being sued by the writers of the fasttrack software.
So the last thing I would do is make kazaaa work with it.

4) ebay's trying to figure out a way to squease some money out of there purchased of skype.
They paid too much for skype, 2.6 billion and i'm sure they have found out at this point that "phones" suck!!!!"
Its hard to make money with them. They purchase skype because they were playing keeping up with the Jones... Google.

5) Ebay is totally in bed with the government and business they will do take downs of auctions for any reason On any product.
So adding Kazaa would be a totally going against there current history.

HI Meg!!!! :P
