Thanks to Michael Graves for the tip
CounterPath is adding the Microsoft/Skype SILK codec to its Bria soft client. The company first let slip the news in a November 8, 2011 blog posting.
The company points out while the SILK codec is free and performs “very well” compared to other similar codecs that are “royalty bearing,” adding it doesn’t mean Bria can interoperate with the Skype service directly.
Michael Graves says CounterPath is working on dropping in SILK for the Android edition of Bria, while the iPhone version already has SILK baked in; the CounterPath website boasts of it as well.
