Default [Q] Video Chat App?

Anyone get a good video chat app working on Archos yet? I installed Fring but it says that video chat is not available on my hardware...I have A101IT. Just wondering if there is something else out there.

Thanks,
caseym

Yahoo and ooVoo seem to work the best.

Sorry, but i have to ask the obvious question, for those who claim oovoo and yahoo messenger works..have you actually tried using them to make video calls?

I've used both the latest apps using my brother's archos 70 to video chat with my galaxy tab but had dismal results. Ooovoo connects but my galaxy tab does not show the video from the Archos 70 and the connection terminates after 10 sec.

Yahoo messenger displays the image just fine but after a few seconds..the image hangs. Even tried its connection with my desktop version. Same thing.

I've also tried the older version of fring to talk to my galaxy tab running the latest fring from the market, but I get a warning from my tab's fring telling me the other party is using an earlier fring version and may have compatibility issues. If I ignore the warning, fring crashes after 10 seconds.

All testing were done with both devices connected to the same wifi router.

Hence sadly, as of now, I do not believe there is even one working video chat software for the Archos 70 running on the latest firmware.

I have used Yahoo with no problems. I personally haven't tested ooVoo yet.. waiting for it to get out of beta.

I ported my ReelPortal video conference to Android recently. It's reported to be working on the Viewsonic G Tablet with certain ROMs. I believe it works on the Archos 70/101, but I don't know how well, since the G Tablet has the Tegra-2 dual-core CPU and the Archos don't.

Anyhow, my app is published on AppLibs, or you can get it from the G Tablet thread here:

Please provide feedback if you try it. Thanks.

I cannot get ooVoo to work on the new firmware (2.1.2). Anyone else got it working? I can see myself but I can't see the person on the other end...I was doing it from my Archos to a laptop with webcam.

Talking video chat

Hey guys what you have to do is download an older version of fring (2.1.0.6) this one works on my archos 70 ... I can't remember where I got the apk but its easy enough to find on google I'm sure, might even be somewhere on xda.
