App enables iPhone video conferencing


At this weekend’s C-4 developer conference, two coders from the Ecamm Network managed to produce a functioning video conferencing application for the iPhone. The application requires a modified mirror to overcome the fact that the iPhone’s camera faces the wrong direction for conferencing. Currently, the application does not handle audio, although the developers point out that the application can run while using the phone on speaker, allowing for audio alongside the video. Neither the completed application nor the source code for the project is currently available; the developers say to “check back.”

u might be right but it would be nice if u have a layout of images/video conference user up to 6 people to have.

this of course put some real stress on the operating system.

but like i said before it’s nice to see a device that makes a huge impact in the cellphone area. even when its not all cellphone it is in in the cellphone/PDA contract area with all the other phones…
