Skype and lipreading

Does anyone here use Skype (or something similar) with video chat to talk to people? Assuming a fast enough connection, is the video smooth enough that lipreading is possible? Is it like watching Youtube or Hulu or Netflix streaming?

The last time I looked into this (which was probably years ago) webcams were sending a series of stills and it was not complete or smooth enough for lipreading. It sounds like maybe the technology has improved, but for some reason I'm having trouble Googling information about it. Thanks!
