Hi,

I need to limit the amount of traffic on the internet (because of mobile connection)
How much traffic can Skype produce during a video chat of one hour?
1. When both parties have video via webcam enabled?
2. When video is shut off (only voice and chat)?
3. When VOIP using VOIPbuster (only voice)?

The traffic usage varies.. It depends upon your Internet speed.

For example
 if you are in a Voice call with one person and uses 70 Kbps.. then you will need 500kByte per minute

i.e.
1 minute voice call at 70kbps consumes ~ 500KB  of data usage
10 min ~ 5 MB
100min ~ 50 MB

thus  you can calculate.  

Use Netlimiter. (google it) It shows the statistics of what are the applications uses  data traffic and how much it used.

Thus you can get your skype's data usage and come to a conclusion.

Hope this helps
