    You just released 5.2.0.1523 for mac and you state: “Support for Mac’s built-in HD and Logitech’s B910 HD cameras”

    Are you kidding me?!?!?!!?

    The C910 is not supported???? You have to be kidding me.

    HD for mac is welcomed but can we stop with the new features and start working on reducing how much CPU footprint skipe has, this is atrocious.

    C910 and B910 are both supported since they are actually the same camera.
