Ok guys, I know I have been pissed that iCrap:mad: got this first, well I downloaded the leaked MyTouch rom today for the sole purpose of grabing this...and it WORKS GREAT!!:D
I haven't got the video from Evo to Mac working yet(im sure i am missing something simple), but the Evo to Evo works great, better than Tango/Qik/Fring. It has video and audio at the same time(cough..Qik...cough) and works well over 3G(lowest confirmed functional 3G is -99db, of course 4G&WiFi work great) , wife and I have been playing calling each other from the next room:p

So if you wanted it and good 'ol Steve J. pissed you off here it is:cool:

Several people have asked about battery life and move to sd support,I can report moving to SD has had zero effect on performance, I personally have not seen an effect on battery,NO 100% AWAKE TIME(cough...Tango...cough) it has not showed up yet on "whats using the battery" in our settings->about phone->battery menu, I have made about 23 video calls now over the 2 days. Remember guys, this is a community and these are just my experiences, lets all share our experiences and help out.

Use a file explorer app, dropbox, or bluetooth folder to install to your handset and I would recommend updating your PC client to the latest version.

Oh, make sure you install both, just the add on for video and voice with the current version of messenger on the market WILL NOT WORK, and before anyone screams warez!! this IS free.

THE PEOPLE YOU ARE CALLING MUST ALSO HAVE A VIDEO OPTION ON THEIR END, you can not call your yahoo account on your phone to your account on the computer(if you are signed in on one you are signed off the other), reported issues with ATT yahoo accounts....

Confirmed Handsets:
Evo 4G
Vibrant
Moto Droid(1)
HD2(Android)
Epic 4G
Galaxy S i9000M
Captivate
Droid Incredible
MyTouch 3G Slide
G1

REPORTED ISSUES WITH SOME GALAXY S MODELS NOT DETECTING FFC

Confirmed video calls to:
iPhone 3Gs
iPhone 4
PC
PC virtual machines on Mac
Vibrant
Epic 4G
Evo 4G

No video calls to Mac OS X Yahoo Messenger yet, sorry!

That is the main reason I wanted it so bad, let me say first that I am using a MacBook Pro, I have not gotten the feature to work for me, but mac video apps are funny to set up, I am working on it, the reason the released it was to do both(phone to phone AND phone to computer) so it IS possible:D
Even so, just the better functionality of phone to phone is worth the download IMHO.
Trust me when Skype pulls their heads out of their collective ass's I will use that, but for now video Skype, as we all know, is verizon only :-(

Ok cool. Thanks for the heads up, and quick response. I installed it anyway, now I just wish I knew someone else with an Evo to test it out lol. Will be keeping my eye out for that Evo to PC news :)

Awesome. Thanks. I tried it from Evo to PC and it works. I think it may have issues with the Mac. I will try that later to confirm the OP on the Mac.


Ok for the fun of it I tried Evo(yahoo) to PC(MSN messnger) and No Go.

    Question... Does it still work the same if you move the Voice and Video Add-on to the SD Card, since it takes up 24MB of space??

    I had plenty of space so I didn't try that, give me a few min. and I will give its shot and report back...
    Edit: I can confirm it working after move to SD card with no quality or speed loss :-D
