Camfrog Video Chat is a magnificent program which provides different kinds of communication via the Internet between computers in user-hosted video chat rooms. Users can start their own rooms with the further possibility to control them.
The messenger works for Linux, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X. It may also be installed on Windows Mobile. The latest version for the iPhone device has been released recently. One of the most pleasant things about the program is that there is no need to use a webcam to communicate with other users.
- Lots of people online.
- Lots of different rooms available.
- Good for people who use sign language.
- 1-to-1 and joined video chat rooms.
- Work with all routers, firewalls and wireless networks.
- Easy to find new friends.
- Really small download (less than 15 minutes).
The program includes communication not only between two people (peer-to-peer), but also in the specially designed rooms up to 2,000 users. This enables you to join real streaming rooms where you have a chance to see, hear and chat with lots of people at the same time.
With the help of Camfrog you will be able find everything there: from music lessons to communicating with foreigners.
The interface is common to similar messengers, though it seems to be a bit basic. Camfrog gives you a wonderful opportunity to create not only your own room, but also protect it with your password. There is a section for privileged rooms, a search function and profiles configuration in the contact list. New contacts are added in one click.
The latest version supports high-resolution video, interface set-up and sending ‘virtual gifts’ to both friends and annoying anonymous.
While installing it is proposed to install some toolbars and widgets to view the weather. What is more, people who suffer from poor hearing can also take an advantage of this messenger. It is much easier for them to communicate by means of video.
Provided that you are a parent, you should pay your attention to some delicate topics, which are not recommended for reading by children. Therefore, for people under 18 years old there is a restriction to view some information (so-called ‘Parental Control’ that allows you as a parent to block certain functions to prevent children’s access to them).
In spite of some drawbacks, the program is a full-featured instant messenger for all the communities along with Skype. Enjoy free download of CamFrog Video Chat here.
