    I was looking for a popular video chat service that people actually have other than the ones I can find on the droid 3 market. There is no oovoo and skype video chat is not working on here for me....help me out...

    Skype gives me some crazy microphone feedback so any answers would be double appreciated.

    My wife and I each have Skype and encounter no 'feedback' problems. Google Talk also seems to work well.

    The latest version of Skype includes video and Google Talk from the Droid 3 update also includes video.

    Skype and GTalk have worked...GTalk seems to drop audio after awhile, but Skype works like a champ on my D3.

    There is nothing wrong with using Google Talk now that the video works, at least on the Droid 3.

    That being said, it will be a change for everyone in our 'circle' as we have been using Skype for years on the PC. For many to use Google Talk, they will need to install both the Google Talk software and the associated video and voice chat plugin onto their computers.

    I'm in a similar boat. I've been attempting to use Skype video chat (with the option enabled), and I just have not been capable of getting it to work. I have uninstalled the default one, installed the one from market, set the options properly, and I can receive video and send sound, but can't get either front or back camera to work.

    So I've been hunting around for new alternatives, Oovoo looks alright, but it doesn't seem to have an Android app yet, my family doesn't use Google, so Google Talk is a hassle until I can get to their houses to do it for them.

    Wish Skype would just work and not eat hours of battery time in a few minutes.

    I haven't been able to get skype or gtalk to work for video chat. Gave tango a try and it works ok, but not great over 3g.
