ooVoo is an elegant and powerful video conferencing and IM client that combines style with functionality.
As opposed to some video conferencing applications, Oovoo is very easy to get running with your webcam and it can handle very high quality digital cameras – up to 2 megapixels, depending on the speed of your connection. During chats and video calls, you can add movie effects such as sepia, blurring and morphing, something that sets it apart from other popular VoIP apps such as
With ooVoo you can talk face-to-face with up to six people , add a good ooVoo link to your blog or on-line profiles (so others can instantly add you to their contacts), send out and receive video messages and, best of all, it’s completely free. You will need to make an Oovoo account however , which, as registrations go, is fairly painless.
Once you’ve started the particular setup process, you’ll be asked to generate an ooVoo username and password. You’ll also end up being asked to add a few friends and contacts to your ooVoo account although if you don’t know anyone using ooVoo, you can simply elect to send invites and hope that they sign up.
What’s really nice about ooVoo, though, is the ability to place your connections, and their video images, over the side of your screen in a sidebar simultaneously. This way, you can chat aside to all of them at the same time and see all of them at once.
Unfortunately, right now ooVoo is not compatible with Lion however the developers claim that they will release a compatible version soon.
OOvoo’s an impressive video chat app, although it would be interesting to see just how it performs when multiple users are trying have a video conference.
