Trying to squeeze streaming video from a 2 megapixel camera over a 2G mobile data line was one thing, but streaming 5 megapixel video through a 4G data network or higher is a whole different story.
However, when I installed the app and tried to initiate a video chat between my Android and our home PC (using two different accounts obviously), I had the hardest time to get the PC Skype app to see the video stream from the phone app.
The Skype application on my computer could see that my phone account was logged in and I could initiate a video call.
The will let you stream live video to the web instantly, but the app also includes a “Video Chat” option that you can use when you just want to stream privately to people and chat with them.
I happened to already have another Qik account, so with the Qik web app I can just initiate a call with my home user account.
If you’re traveling and want to keep in touch with your kids or your spouse, just have then sign up with their own Qik account and they can chat with you right on the website.
