skypehires 20070209 Experimental High resolution Skype for Mac and PC
Jaanus Kase posted instructions over on Skype’s developer site for enabling higher quality 640×480 video. You need to upgrade to the latest Skype release ( or later for mac and for PC), quit Skype, and then edit the config.xml file in your settings directory (“~/Library/Application Support/Skype/[skypeusername]/” in OS X).

You should see an entry that looks similar to:
   <Device>Built-in iSight</Device>

Modify that to read:
   <Device>Built-in iSight</Device>

When you’ve finished, your contacts will be seeing you in glorious 640×480 instead of the standard 320×240. There are some tweaks and hardware requirements that might be required for the PC version, so check up on the links below for the nitty-gritty details.
