Camfrog Video Chat allows access to chat rooms with video through streaming. The well-known conventional text chat adds the possibility to see the other users connected by videoconference. You can chat privately (1 to 1), or participate in rooms with up to 100 contacts at a time.
It is also possible to create your own chat room using free servers provided by CamFrog, with the possibility of giving visitors access to a website, to enter chat or to participate in the videoconference. There is a server software that can be installed on your own server, with the advantage that you can be the administrator of the same. On the official site you can check documentation on how to join the free rooms, or how to install software that runs on the server side.
Another very useful functionality that can be given to this program is to convert the PC into a surveillance system through the webcam. You can access remotely from other computers and see live images of what happens in the home, trade or where the webcam is installed.
The application also offers a communication tool for players, who will be able to chat and face each other while they are playing online.
