Video conferencing with Google+

Google Hangouts is proving to be an interesting tool.

  • You can (for free) have multipoint video calls with to to 10 sites, but this can be a drain on your (host) bandwidth. It does, though, appear to behave better than Skype in this respect.
  • You can 'broadcast' to a wider audience by streaming directly to YouTube. (Beware, though, this is publicly viewable)
  • You can also add a national flag, name and location textbar at the bottom of your videostream to help others know who is who. Nice :-)
