oovoo.com - Cool, free video chat program.

Hey all,

I recently starting using video conferencing to give Photoshop lessons to people, so I have tried many different ones. I just wanted to let you know that my brother discovered a new one last night. It's called oovoo and can be found at oovoo.com.

It's cool because it is powerful, and has many options, but it's presented in a clean, uncluttered OSX looking shell on a windows PC. The video screens are skewed to give it more of a 3D look. It does chat and file transfer too.......

Anyone used it? I dig it..


Just thought I would share,

Matt!

KillerQ, good to hear your experiences. I write for ooVooworld, then unofficial WOM world for ooVoo, and I've been gathering case studies of people using video conferencing esp for e-learning, so it's cool to hear you using it for Photoshop lessons. What do you do, show the computer screen on the webcam as you manipulate the program?

Looks like you can do video with multiple users at the same time. I might have to try it.

Molly -- I sent you a PM explaining everything...

Thor -- Yes, that's the best part of this program - check out the website - you'll see!

Thanks,

Matt!
