Ever whip out that webcam, login to your fave IM service to do some video chatting and proceed to feel like you're watching an old fashion movie the way it's all jumpy. Kinda seems like the camera takes pictures in 2 second intervals rather than in live time. Pretty annoying isn't it? I know for me it's highly annoying. Well after much searching I found (ok I lie... DoGG found, but I'm posting the thread so I'm taking credit) a free program that works in REAL LIVE TIME Applause CamFrog also offers a Pro version which you can purchase that adds extra features such as the ability to also leave the chat windows on top, a bigger chat screen and some other things. The free version's chat screen is about the same size of all the other video chats I've used so I'm not complaining.
The program supposedly has some chat rooms also, I guess where you can video chat with lots of people... I'm not sure I don''t Know I only use it to chat one on one. And if you're doing that, then you want to set your privacy setting to private. When first using the program I had people just requesting to chat that I didn't know, so I learned this real quick Laughing

They also have this cool feature, that serves no purpose except to have fun with. It's call CamFrog eyes. Right click in your video box, pick Camfrog eyes.

And then you look like this....

clicky to download CamFrog

Yes those things detect your eyes, and move right along with you... they get smaller as you move away from your camera and larger as you move closer. Boy did we get a kick out of this the first time DoGG I found it Big Grin

Happy chatting!

Re: Video Chat in live time

OK the frog eyes are hysterical!

See video chatting scares me (I'll admit I have a few times). I personally come home from work, make up off, hair in a pony tail (out of my eyes), comfy dressed - yeah not what I really want ppl seeing me like *not pretty*

I've only used the web cam on Windows Live Messenger and it can be choppy and once logging in on a webinar (that was unplanned and so unprepared).

Great find critter. I may download it just for the frog eyes

Re: Video Chat in live time

I think Skype does full motion too, but I haven't tried it.

Word of caution about Camfrog: even though you have yourself set to Privacy Mode, people can still find you in user searches, see that you're online, and click the Add to Contact button to try and add you. They just can't send you an IM because it'll be ignored automatically.

And whatever ya do, even though you're in Privacy Mode, and think that means others can't see what you're broadcasting while trying to have a one-on-one vid chat, don't do anything on cam that you wouldn't want the world to see, while also being in a chat room at the same time. They'll still see everything you did, you just won't hear what they're saying to you if they try to IM you.

So make sure all chat rooms are closed.

Re: Video Chat in live time

Re: Video Chat in live time

Have you ever tried Tokbox.com My neighbor was just chatting about it on facebook and said she liked it better then skype. I thought I would toss that out there but I'm not sure if its live or the choppy chat.
