Video Conference Five Friends Free with ooVoo.com

Last week I mentioned TokBox as a new, browser-based video conferencing tool. This week I discovered ooVoo (via JaffeJuice via Mitch Joel's podcast) and it's exciting to see a tool launch that can allow live video conferencing with up to six people. I've thought for a while that one of the hindrances with other services was the limitation for only two people to conference. ooVoo will require you to download and install their software but this a great next step in online video conferencing. I can certainly see the benefit for friends, family, and business so it's worth checking out if you use (or have an interest in) online video conferencing...and it's free too.

Hey Bill - How goes it? It has been a while. :-) I'd love to hear your thoughts on ooVoo - have you been using it at all? For that matter, I'd love to connect over ooVoo. My ID is gregverdino (orginal, I know - add me and let's chat sometime - and let's find a few other blogfriends and make it a party.)

Hey guys, I am representing ooVoo, and I am glad you are giving it a shot. It has proven to be a great tool for several small business because of its ability to connect so many people at once. Its friendly and easy to use platform has also been a hit-my stone age parents got it to work on the first try, which I consider a huge success. I look forward to post on your thoughts and opinions. Also, as a marketing strategist, you might want to check out a great blog called Marketing Conversation if you haven't seen it already. I think you might have many of the same interests. Blog on!

Hey there, Bill, I work with Greg and am actually Chessia's boss, so this is just a regular marketing guy party, here. I just wanted to avail to you access to the Mac version of ooVoo. Also, please let me know if you would like to do a featurette of ooVoo on your blog with interviews and access to the gang from the company. Let me know, man. Talk soon.
