    I travel too much for work, and love to speak to my young son on the PC webcam....

    But i would love to have the option to use my IP4, while he is at the computer.

    Is there anything out there yet for IP4?


    I read that Yahoo will soon have this so thats good - just wondering if anything currently exists..

    thanks

    If you have a JB phone, you can.

    I know that cuts off a lot of the population. It WAS in the app store than it was pulled for some reason.

    I can successfully chat from my i4 to a mac/pc using iMovicha.

    JB phones:
    go into cydia and download it.

    PC/MAC:
    go to movicha.com and download the client.

    This allows video chat from iPhone, Android and soon BB to eachother and PC/MAC's.

    Yahoo just updated their app. I havnt had a chance to try it yet, but it looks like you can do video calls now.

    Fring says it communicates with AIM, which MobileMe logs into, but it doesn't look like the Video button works on AIM users. You should be able to Fring video with someone logged into Google Chat on a Mac or PC with a webcam who has video chatting through Google. I have used my Gmail acct to webcam on my iMac but have not tried using Fring to connect to one of those contacts yet. Any tried that?

    Currently the video chat only works from an iPhone/iPod touch (w/FaceTime) to Yahoo Messenger on a Windows computer, their is no compatibility for Macs yet, last time i checked.

    I meant within Yahoo Messenger, thats why I quoted and replied to gee38l's and vhl71's post. Yahoo Messenger does not currently support Video Chat between an iDevice and a Mac computer, only between an iDevice to a Windows PC.
