Video Conference on Mac

I have been a long time Skype user due to its great international rates. However, when video conferencing Skype often freezes or stalls. For example if you minimize Skype to look at something else, then try to pull Skype back up again, the audio works but the video freezes. Also there can be static or a ringing noise in the background due to poor quality.

I recommend Google Video, a free feature recently integrated with Gmail and Google Chat. The quality is better from my experience (less ambient noise). The connection is more stable. It hogs less RAM. Basically, it is built into your browser, but it also has a pop out feature. There is a full screen mode as well.

I hope to write a full review sometime soon on my blog. I will continue to use Skype as my preffered VOIP.
