This is the greatest video chat software ever invented. I haven't tried the Windows version yet, but on Android this is the only app that supports the Dell Streak 5's front facing camera. The Windows software can't be much worse than the Android version and it's not that hard to add support for a front facing camera in a video chat app under Froyo or Eclair. It's just as easy as it is in Gingerbread.

Sadly disappointed with the prog. The ads (which are hideous) add insult to injury.

I used to give this 5 starts - now if I could give it zero I would but guess the lowest I can go is a 1.

What it boils down too is the ad's are ridiculous. It's such a shame too. When ooVoo first came out I thought it was the best because the streaming audio/video worked better than any other videochat program I'd ever used. Now it's just a bunch of banner ads wrapped around a program! Like what the hell ooVoo!?!?

If they ever decide to give a crap about their users - I'll be back - but until then guess it's back to skype (along with all their other users no doubt)

The program itself is fair - 3 stars

HOWEVER - I would gladly give this ZERO stars

Many of the adverts are from companies that routinely lie
eg "[Google mail logo] You have a new message ..." clicking on it take user to a website (nothing to do with Google) with a competition to win an iPad

I have written a strong email to customer services
"While I appreciate your software is financed by the revenue from adverts - the least you can do, is embed advert from companies that don't lie or misrepresent themselves."

and as alexsch8 states opens a door to all manor of horrors.

I will be staying away until they either remove the adverts (for free) or clean them up.

The free version of ooVoo is actually a virus distribution system via the online ads it displays. Be warned!

We were using at the office as a trial and two laptops got hosed with fake anti-virus trojans. Yes, of course we could have patched Flash but nonetheless, why even bother exposing yourself to that.

beckster,
Sorry to hear about your problems. There is good reason why skype is #1. But more importantly never, never ever test any program on your main machine, ever! Always use a VM of test-bench - you will say yourself much grief.

Good framerate and easy to use, but there's too many freeware apps to pay for this.

Well - this USED to be my favorite video chat application - that is until they filled the thing with banner ads and want $ for group chats....oh well - back to Skype.

The advertising is large and in bad taste. It really distracts from the conversation. I do like the ability to add multiple participants, but there is a fee attached. I much prefer Skype.

ooVoo is degraded from first CLEAN beta release some times ago, become to adware, displaying lots of ads in GUI and conversation window, slow down your PC. Compare with Skype?? Skype is better, latest version have perfect video and sound quality, lots of features and CLEAN .

Skype is lighter. Oovoo has a better interface though.

ooVoo has not altered anything on my pc system. I also do not have a publicity bar that I have read others complaining about in other forums, nothing but a white blank rectangle, unlike my cousin who tells me she gets advertisements in Spanish, which she can't read. So I can only give this free program a 100% thumbs-up. If I give this less than a 5 rating, it is only because it does not allow for full screen resizing of windows.
