Can someone fill me in on video chatting software. My kids use Ovoo and I cannot believe how kool (and free) it is. I am in business and think I would be a useful tool. I am purchasing some web cams for my biggest customers so we can speak over the computer. What is the best free service to use for business? I do not know what else is out there. Looking for good clean conections and nice options and features.

Thanks

Maybe my termonology is incorrect. Is Ovoo a video conference? Or is it called something else?

Ovoo says it is:
http://www.oovoo.com/

The only limitation is it's only good for 6 hookups at once
I believe what I linked you too will do more than that
