Here’s 8 web apps I’ve found to quickly and easily connect over a group video chat. You’d think with the internet maturing that there’d be more options for web-based no-download no-frills multi-user video conferencing. Granted, multi-point more-than-two livestreamed-duplex video feeds does raise the degree of technical difficulty exponentially. Of these free web apps, some are quicker to use (no registration required) instantly and some more reliable, your mileage may vary. ymmv.
- Google+ Hangout http://plus.google.com/hangouts/
- http://tokbox.com api can be embeded on a web page, i.e. http://djchuang.com/chat/tokbox/
- http://www.friendcaller.com/ (runs a java applet)
- http://apps.facebook.com/ooVoovideochat/ (installs a plugin)
- http://www.faceflow.com/ (registration required)
Any more choices for multi-user video conferencing out there?
