Using Skype 2.2 on Linux, the video which is reproduced seems to be limited to 320x240; the default options to resize the window are disabled.
Is there a way to force a resize of this window? Just integer scale would be acceptable (eg. 2x only)...

Try to resize the Window with alt+middle mousebutton. Or try
wmctrl to force a resize:
wmctrl -r "Windowname" -e g,x,y,w,h
Change Windowname into the one you want to be resized.
wmctrl -r "Firefox" -e 0,0,400,800,600
Changes a Window containing "Firefox" in it's Windowtitle to 800 x 600 and moves it to 0x400 on the desktop.
I've run into this problem with the new skype for Linux 3.18, I found that the resize option was greyed out when you try to use it. Through some basic fiddling with the options on the interface, you can reset the window by going to "View" and clicking "actual size", check to see if the resize option is now available, if not, close the program down, and relaunch. The resize option should now be available again. It seems that there is a minimal desktop area which skype will allow, so when you resize notice how items in the interface change, so adjust according to your tastes, but do not try to exceed the minimum area set, otherwise you're back to square one.
