free video chat

ooVoo has launched a Mac version of its cross-platform video chat solution that allows people to connect for free with both Mac and PC users across the internet. ooVoo 1.2.0.88 features the ability to send and receive video messages, exchange files and text chat messages as well as import contacts from other programs. The company says that ooVoo was developed with video at its core for a richer communication experience with high quality video and reduced video delay, clear audio and better lip synchronization. ooVoo's multi-party video chat offers resolution of 320x240 at up to 30 frames per second using a standard broadband internet connection; it requires only 128 Kbps (up and down) of throughput, which it claims is "less than half required by competitors for a one to one video chat."

"We have worked hard to ensure the Mac version of ooVoo offers this valuable part of our customer base one of the most dynamic video experiences available today," said Philippe Schwartz, CEO of ooVoo. "As the highest quality cross platform Mac and PC video chat solution, we look forward to enabling more conversations between Mac and PC users across the globe, and breaking down the traditional barriers of video communication."

The software requires a 1GHz Power Mac G5 or an Intel-based Mac, a Mac compatible webcam and headset, and a broadband connection, and either Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger (or Leopard).
