    Software for Multiple conversations -- NOT Facebook though


    Hi there
    Is there any decent software around of enabling MULTIPLE concurrent conversations (not FACEBOOK or Twitter please) with VIDEO -- by multiple concurrent conversations I mean speaking to say 15 - 20 people individually with video and being able to switch windows so each person is just speaking to you individually -- say like using SKYPE with multiple INPUT calls at the same time.

    I'm not interested in the Office collaboration software where people are in a remote meeting together and it's like a meeting. I want these to be like individual conversations but having several going on at once.

    I haven't seen anything that can do this yet - but IMO it would be well worthwhile -- but I'm no expert on this.

    Please note the essence is that each conversation is ONE to ONE --NOT A MEETING.

    Cheers

    Google Hangout? Google+ Hangouts

    Although I dont know if you can just keep 1 to 1.

    Two others worth looking at:

    CamFrog
    FREEware
    O/S: Windows XP/2003/Vista/Server 2008/7/8
    Camfrog Video Chat Rooms & Live Webcams!
    Camfrog Video Chat allows you to join real streaming video chat rooms where you can hear, see, and chat with many people at a time. It is videoconferencing software . . .

    Jitsi
    FREEware OpenSource
    https://jitsi.org/
    Clearly, Skype is the world’s most popular voice and video chat client and it supports a wide variety of platforms. But if you are looking for an alternative that affords you privacy and more control, Jitsi is the answer. Touted by security conscious netizens like the Tor Project’s own Jacob Appelbaum as an ideal alternative . . .

    Jitsi looks promising.
