I'm currious about this as well. I'm interested to see if there is something currently available for video chatting to a PC or MAC from the EVO. If not, hopefully something is in the works. I think this would be very useful for video conferencing when you are mobile.

Okay, I've setup a test account on my pc, and ran it on my eVo... I can say for certain, it SUCKS..
Video quality is horrible (on WiFi, same WLAN even!!). No option to switch to front camera, so only can use 8M camera on back for video..
Didn't bother with audio, cause the video was soo pixelated that it would be considered unusable to me..
Compared to Fring and Qik (eVo to eVo), this is definately at the bottom of the barrel.. maybe with some improvements and the ability to use the front facing camera might help.. but they need to work on video quality.

There needs to be a solution for this soon. QIK is ok, but we need something more accepted by non-EVO users. FRING/SKYPE was great, I'm rather frustrated on how Verizon chooses to team with a vendor for exclusivity. Could you imagine Sprint having an exclusivity contract with google (not that it would ever happen).
So.. here is what we need. A native Google Talk Video chat client for the phone. I'm stunned it's not there already.
A Skype Clone that somehow bypasses what their legal team would complain about. My Nokia 800 Tablet has Skype AND Gizmo Video! How is it that my Nokia has better integration with a Google owned company/software than Google does?
Even my Microsoft 6.1 phones can run skype on non Verizon phones (not video though).
... not that video chat is at all useful.

Just used movicha and the front and rear cam worked. The audio was pretty bad thru the speaker but seemed a bit better with some ear buds. The vid i saw of the other person was decent but they said i was a bit distorted. Neither of us were asked for any type of payment but maybe for me it uses my mins? Not sure. Full screen was DEF horrible tho. The picture is very stretched out. The vid of yourself displays in the lower left of the person you're talking to but you can shut it off. Overall i would say if you really want to vid chat with someone who doesn't have a ffc phone ( in my case fam across the country) it will have to do for now until someone gets the ball rolling on something better
