    So far I have tried Tango, Qik, Swype and yahoo messenger video plug in.

    I havent found any that support Droid 3 yet. One of the main reasons I went from D2 to D3 was for the ability to use my ffc to chat with others.

    I am PATIENTLY waiting for an app that will support my phone, if anyone knows of one, please let me know - I am very suprised my phone was pre loaded with LETS GOLF but yet NO app for video chat one of they KEY NEW features of the phone??? Please let me know if I am missing anything.

    I am NOT a techie expert, but I have quickly realized that just knowing the basics wont help with first issue smartphones, so I am becoming an Advanced Basic user :)

    I know for a fact that Tango works, just tried it last night between the Droid and my Xoom. Qik disappeared for some reason.

    The problem with all of these video apps is the same as the IM chat clients. You need to have the same service. What I would like to see is a video chat app that will interface with different services so you don't have to play random chat app everyday.

    I tried Tango with 2x Droid 3's and there was terrible echoing and "scratchy" sound w/ no background noise on either end. Doesn't appear like it is optimized well or something.

    Tango did work and projects video both on mine and my boyfriends Epic, however the audio quality is awful, high pitched feedback and we cant hear one another.

    I was PRESUMING its because my D3 just isnt part of their app yet. He installed and reinstalled Tnago, as did I, same problems. THere are no settings in Tango for me to play with to help this. If anyone can think of anything, lemme know.

    My D3 hates Tango. I tried to use it conversing on my XOOM and all I could see on each device was the picture from my Xoom front facing camera. I tried changing setting on the D3 and there isn't much to mess with there.

    Am I missing something?

    I posted a link in the Dinc2 forum for a working Skype video apk. Someone posted that they have it working on their D3. I'm on my phone now otherwise I would post the link here for you. I think the thread title is "working Skype video on Dinc2". Give it a try. I used it twice yesterday on 3G and was told the picture and sound quality were better than my computer. Good luck!

    I installed it on my Droid 3 and tested it out with someone on a PC. I can see the video of them on my phone, but the camera on the Droid 3 never starts up. They don't see me, and I don't see me in the corner. Audio seems to work, just no video.

    I also installed it on my Thrive, but it crashes every time I try to sign in.

    I will try the vtok and post my results. Of all the different features I have been reading about it really seems the videochat apps, garner the most differences. We all seem to have different failures, but none of us seem to be having consistent success.

    The app I need is one to vc with a Sprint Epic :)

    Okay so i downloaded Vtok but my contact screen in blank, when i go to FAQs it says if your contact screen is blank then click invite .. but there is no invite button, just a blank contact screen, i un and then re installed it.

    I went online to my goggle account and confirmed my bf was in my contacts and was live and online at vtok waiting for me, but he doesnt see me either, his screen is blank too with no "invite someone..." button either.

    Hmmmmm.....and the quest continues.....

    weird because i see all my contacts that have a video compatible device signed in. or a head set so i can voice talk with them through it. try restarting the phone and relaunch it, a few times it was blank and refreshed itself, if that doesnt work try signing off and back in again. works great for me.

    Okay i rebooted my phone, and still I only have a blank screen, with 3 options at bottom, signout, help, search, I do beleive something is amiss. Weird that it loaded on your d3 properly.

    It has loaded on my D3 and the GF's D3 properly, we are able to communicate back and forth, as well as with a PC on the gmail interface. It all kind of works well, but there is a delay and quality is so-so. Might be better on wifi, wasn't able to test that.

    AUGGH! Okay, I can understand a lot of things, but how can one app load differently from one of the same D3s to another. Are there THAT many different build differences between each of the D3s?

    I can assure you that with the exception of some Handcent customizations, and Battery Manager tricks that I have tried (including buying an extended batt, which has done NOTHING to get me longer then 4 hours, I have done nothing to the guts of my phone.

    I have been reading all over this board and a few others just trying to get my phone right. It seems there are an extraordinary number of quirks with apps :(

    Patience, Melissa, Patience, I am sure ion a few weeks all these apps will be running on everyones D3s very nicely.
