This application is more than just an instant messenger such as MSN or Yahoo, as it combines a chat room with messaging, audio and video streaming. Notice that a webcam is not necessary, but no video feed on you part will be presented. Plus having video is one of the reasons to use this program since Camfrog allows the users to talk with many people at the same time and not only individually.

The Chat rooms feature everything, for example, music lessons or specific topic group chatting. There are also a few adult rated chat rooms so this program may not be suitable for minors, reason for which they should restrict downloads to people under 18 years of age or restrict these rooms somehow.

CamFrog works behind firewalls for secure chatting, also the users that create chat rooms can protect them by assigning a password.

Camfrog may result a great option for companies since multi-user videoconferencing is supported. Make a room with up to thousand users, click the user name to visualize someone or press the talk button to talk to all assistants with audio.

If you are looking for multi-user videoconferencing the requirement is that a computer or server should have the Video Chat Room Server software installed so that many users can join.
