I've been trying to figure out why Skype uses appx. 95% of my processing power when transmitting video. By way of comparison, my friends using similar hardware and Vista report that they only see a 25% utilization factor when using skype video. Is it possible that skype is functioning in a way similar to peer2peer?

It's just an issue Skype has with talking to webcams. It's a known bug, but not considered high priority:

TNX Squaregoldfish, I appreciate your taking the time to point me in the right direction. My major concern was overheating the CPU (AMD Am2) over extended call durations.

I agree the picture and sound quality due not seem to be impaired at all.
