Lazy Friday Video Post: D&D Session with Skype

I recently stumbled upon this video and found it very intriguing. One of the players obviously couldn’t make it to the gaming session, but was able to join the fun using Skype. And from what I can see, not much more than a computer with a webcam and Skype is needed. I think I will to try this out sometime.

What are you experiences (if any) with something like that? Have you ever used a video conference to add a player who couldn’t come to the regular meeting?
