    My favorite option with ooVoo is the video messages that you can send through email. All receivers have to do is click on the watch video and it pops up and plays. There is no loading of video or opening a certain media player. Quick and easy.

    I work for ooVoo and was just suggesting to someone else that any improvements that you think ooVoo could make should be sent to http://support.oovoo.com/. Customer support and product development need these ideas to keep attracting users. Hope this helps! My user name is kwolph, if you would like another friend!

    @Katie,
    Indeed the video messaging is really nice feature.

    @Rajesh,
    Was that question to Katie? 🙂

    Picture the name as a picture message. The first two ‘oo’ and the last two ‘oo’ are sets of eyes with V in the middle. V is for video. So, two-way video communication–ooVoo. Make sense?

    Oops! Video conferencing! It is new to me. I have heard of teleconferencing. I think I now need to look into the technical world and keep myself updated. Anyway, the idea is good. 😳

    Yes, I also think the support of multi-user conferencing is the most useful thing about this program.

    Glad to have made the name more clear. I had no clue how to pronounce it at first. Here is one more helpful tidbit: http://www.myoovoday.com. That link will let curious individuals download the Mac version not available at ooVoo homepage.

    Initially the concept of video conferencing was new to me but due to the change in technologies I felt that work and the performance of business can be effectively be increased positively due to the investment I made in more than one telepresence room. However, many telepresence solutions are now standards based, so they are compatible with other desktop.

    The idea which I got from a conference room environment that delivered an experience which is so true to life an executive could use the solution instead of spending time and money traveling to meetings. The investment which I made on time the returns of the company justify the expense. The profits margin has increased tremendously.

    Katie,

    I was curious as to how the technology worked. Does it share client resource like Skype does? I ask because in a business setting Skype is not viable do to the fact that it shares the resources and bandwidth of the business. Even though SKype is marketed to companies as a savings there is a security concern. We are experimenting with oovoo now and would like to know how it manages the connections without giving away your secret.
