    Default Video Chatting W/ Evo

    Ok so I am trying to figure out how the hell to start a video chat on the Qik app with a friend of mine on Ichat. Can someone help me out or am I that tired that it's very simple and I'm just not getting it?

    They have to be using Qik to chat with you.

    Aw man, I could've swore I heard it was going to let you chat with anyone on any video chat service. Any apps you can recommend that let you chat with AIM, Ichat etc.?

    You CAN video chat with anyone... as long as they're using Qik. (Though I actually thought I remembered seeing that Qik video chat wasn't ready yet anyhow.)

    Perhaps Fring might be a better solution, as that works with Skype.

    You can chat with anyone... they just have to use Qik.

    I haven't heard of any apps that let you chat with multiple clients. Just tell the dude to get Qik.

    I know that "Qik" probably been out for awhile but this if my first time using it. And I haveto say, I'm really impressed. I'm watching this live feed right now of bestbuy /mobile phone sales rep selling the Evo. I've been texting him and everything.

    this is cool as $%^&!

    We should all post vids on Qik....lol

    Open up Qik >hit the menu button> select share>select your contact.

    I believe they must also have Qik

    It's not working for me either. Is live chat up yet? I know it wasn't supposed to be up until the 4th, but today's the 4th.

    Qik will (try to)contact anyone on your contact list, but they must have Qik to see/accept your video conversation...

    I haven't been able to get Fring or Qik to work but I just tried iMovicha and it worked fine. I couldn't figure out how to get the front facing camera working, but video was being sent both ways using the back camera.

    I used Fring tonight with my friend who uses Skype and it was pretty good. Of course not crystal clear, but definitely passable.

    I think that the features of fring (skype compatibility) plus qik having the complete clusterf*** with their service on the evo will probably drive me to never even really try qik and just use fring... Ill have to install it and give it a shot.

    Currently testing every rom under the sun to see which one I like best. Warm 2.2 is current winner!

    Would definitely suggest you do. When I did my video chat both audio and video were in sync and like I said I was on 3g.
