Can people on skype call an online number for free?

I'm trying to set up an account that can automatically videochat anyone in the world without me being at the computer (it's for a project). I've already gotten as far as having anyone in my contact list being able to do so, and that works great.


So now I want to make everyone able to do that, and instantly. So letting them send me a contact request wouldn't work (and I don't see any way to video chat anyone outside my contact list - I did enable this in the settings).


So I was wondering if I bought an online numver, would people be able to call that number on their own skype account and automatically start the video chat?





PS: something like automatically accepting contact requests would work too. Can that be done?
