    I hadn’t heard of this yet. How does it compare to Seesmic?

    It sounds kind of cool – but I hate the name. Oovoo sounds like a little dog.

  2. Georg says:

    Looks like it does everything Seesmic does, plus the real-time video conference recording.

    The bells and whistles on ooVoo look neat, and I’m hearing a lot of folks on Twitter talking it up.

    Unfortunately, it doesn’t work (yet) on the Mac, which seems goofy to launch a product and not have it work on the platform that so many of the early-adopters of tech are using.

    So, for now, I’ll stick to Seesmic, which is interesting, useful, and fun.

  4. Scott Monty says:

    This is totally different than Seesmic. With ooVoo it’s live chat – and you get up to 6 people in a chat at a time.

    And ooVoo DOES have a Mac client available: http://www.myovooday.com

    There is a site called Mebeam , which also has
    16 person room recording and keeps i think the
    video forever, so you can go back and click
    the timeline and watch it back – very good quality and
    free.

    I work on behalf of ooVoo and just wanted to add alittle bit more about ooVoo for people looking at different video conferencing options.ooVoo is a free video chat download that allows up to 6 people to have a video chat at the same time. One can also take part in the video chat through an audio feed if they don’t have a webcam.

  8. Lafeeu says:

    Thanks for the extremely positive review of ooVoo. It’s great that you are getting the word out about the convenient free applications available online. As a representative for ooVoo I would like to invite you to ask me any questions you may have about the product and its offerings. Feedback is always great so we can know where our users would like us to improve our service.

    Where the recorded data will be saved in hdd ?

  10. naturally like your web-site however you have to take a look
    at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of
    them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I’ll
    surely come again again.
