An Alternative to Skype, maybe

I just read in an article that a party in germany makes use of a service
called Brubble. (brubble.net)
Its videochat and free (?) and does not require any software. Maybe an
alternative to Skype.
I will check it and see how good it is. Anyone is using it already?

Just tried it. It does not recognise my webcam. It is web based, like google chat which is better integrated with other google tools, such as gmail (and can use my webcam perfectly). Unfortunately skype is still useful, because having a separate client, to which most of your friends are connected, is clearly difficult to replace. I still think there is room for a new service, similar to skype, and portable on all platforms. But not yet.

Yes, happend to me to. Not sure why. There supposed to be a menu popping
up where you can make adjustments. Nothing.
My popup blocker was disabled. Strange.

I haven’t tried Gmail for that purpose but i will give it a try.

I read some article that Mozilla is working on an HTML5 Video chat application/extension.

Since Microsoft bought Skype I am looking around for alternatives.

Here is a new great alternative called Reflap that allows you to make free video calls to anyone of your choice even if they aren’t a user as well as receive calls from anyone through your personal call address. Check it out at Reflap | Always stay connected with video chat
