Hey listen guys.
I tried the following and seems to do the trick.
I removed the folder ~/Library/Application\ Support/Skype
It seems to take care of freezing every few seconds. Hope it stays that way.

I had the same Exact issue and this is what i did and it solve the problem
Update the Java to the latest level, i took a look on the Logs after it froze and tried to check it it got many things to do with Java crash, so i updated java to the latest and its working for the 3rd day now with no problem, im not sure if that should be the fix for it, but that works for me.
Just give it a try guys hope that help.
If that solved your problem please hit like so people would know that the issue was solved that way.
Upgrading Java to 1.7 u45 did the trick! While I had first downgraded (which also worked), upgrading the Java version has given me a much more stable version with 6.9!
The steps I did included:
- Downloading the DMG from:
- Double-clicking to run the package installer
- Re-upgrading Skype to 6.9
And yay, working! Thanks!
Im glad it helps mate,
For me as far as i know that this would be temporary and the fix should come from Skype team tho because upgrading the java will only help temporary i guess, hope that doesnt come again and skype work fast on fixing that issue,
Same issue here. Was advised by Skype support to clear all local Skype files and reinstall (I fail to see why reinstalling would help, but clearing settings might help). I'll see if this sorts the issue tomorrow. I don't have much faith in Skype, after crap like voicemails playing back at double speed for over six months, and v5+'s horrible iPad-style UI, to give but two examples.
Skype 6.9, Mid-2007 24" 2.8GHz iMac, 4GB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256MB VRAM, OS X 10.6.8
I am having the same problem. Checking here with support, restart skype, restart mac. problem persists. The problem is with Microsoft and Skype, fix it please!
it is funny how I never get the opportunity for feedback when the call is crappy, which is 90% of the time.
After downgrading, I see that CPU usage has dropped from 87-111% (6.9) to around 65-72% (6..
We'll see how this plays out, but that's a pretty significant drop.
