Does anyone video chat? What do you use?

August 22, 2009 1:04am CST
I see Google has video chat within gmail. I am sure there are other video chat programs too. Does anyone use video chat and what kind of equipment, program and connection speed do you use. I doubt this is available for dialup, but I am on high speed and should be able to use. I have an old cam somewhere and a headphone with microphone so I should be ready to go. It is also free. Is there group video chat? Advice?

well I sometimes use either msn or skype, although I am usually on a site called pal its in my profile, as theres alot of choice in there for chat rooms or you can also just chat one on one.

Hai, I am mostly using SKYPE for video and audio chatting. I have refered the same to my friends so that I could talk with them in skype. I use gtalk for text chatting only. In skype I felt, the audio and video chatting is much more better than gtalk. So I use skpe for these chatting. Regrads, Reyas

I have my own webcam but i seldom doing video chat. I'm moody on doing video chat. But if i'm in mood, my favourite is Yahoo Messenger and MSN Messenger. I have alot of friends in my YM and MSN. I'll doing video chat only with my well-known friends. I think we should protect our privacy when talking with strangers for the first time, more over if in cyberspace chatting. There's alot of criminal out there. Happy mylotting.

I have never done a video chat but i know what we exactly use while doing a video chat.All you need is a web cam and a good quality speakers with a headphone attached.Your webcam also should be with a good pixel settings so that you can get a better picture quality.

I use an online service called tinychat (: You can even name your own chatroom for free, all supported by a tiny little add on the side :3 Voicechat, videochat, normal chat (: However, the only fallback is that the chatroom will be accessible to anyone who knows the URL and can be moderated by whoever joins first at any given time, so get there first if you want to have admin priviledges :3
