For a long time, Skype has remained the unquestioned leader in video chat and internet VoIP platform with a suite of services and great user response. However, you can now have Skype alternative applications that will give you more personalized user setting options and better responses at certain scenarios. The first question you might ask yourself is: why would I need an alternative to Skype at all? It has been a stable service since 2002, has great payment records via PayPal and is accepted to be the VoIP platform of choice across the world. However, along with the success, problems like frequent dropped calls and instability under low bandwidth has also risen to greater extents, requiring a search for other better options, especially in 2010.People do not use Skype just to make calls but for video chats with their family, friends and colleagues. Chatroulette puts a new spin on things by allowing you to webcam chat with a complete stranger. Just like Skype, you can find lots of Chatroulette alternative options that has enhanced on the main features for a better user experience. These new applications might not be as stable or in demand as the original platforms but they have picked up on the innovation and modified it for a better end result. As a user, you should certainly try out the alternate options to see if they suit your style.Google has its famous GTalk service that operates similar to Skype. The same can be said for the Yahoo IM that has its own user base. However, lots of other applications enable the features of multi way video conferencing for business purposes or simple chat sessions for your personal needs. The quality of the call or chat is kept high so you can make video calls without any interruptions in the middle. The same can be said for Chatroulette that has lots of new clones providing unique experiences of their own.There is so much to look forward to these new applications and platforms in terms of innovation, stability and the end user satisfaction. New Chatroulette alternatives such as "FaceFlow" allow you to stay in touch with new people you meet, directly within the application, so you can video call them at a later time. Many platforms integrate video options online while others provide a more attractive interface so that you can work on them in your own preferential manner without any hassles.Lots of new portals are still emerging that offer webcam and chat solutions for users to develop their own social network. They have the right idea and framework in place so you can just sign up and be a part of the experience. You can expect greater quality, dedicated speeds and an active new community willing to try out their features. The online social platform is all about knowing other individuals and building new bonds to convert strangers into friends. The new list of Skype alternative applications and Chatroulette clone services might just be the next step in video and voice chat for your requirements, but only the best will succeed.

Secondly, you need to take a good look at the company that is providing the cam chat. Many web cam websites have gotten the industry a bad name by putting out fake web cam shows, sites that can install spyware or viruses while you visit, and sites that can steal your personal information. Luckily, there are plenty of other sites who have proven consistently to be reliable and not to have any of these issues whatsoever. Look for private and long-standing companies with lots of reviews, these companies are generally a good (and secure) option and many of them do a great job of helping cater to your specific desires as well.

If a new webcam technology from Microsoft get the go-ahead, then instant messaging could get a whole lot more interesting.Currently under development at the Microsoft research labs in Cambridge, England, the new webcam, i2i consists of two lenses, which carefully follows an individual’s movement. Using an exclusively developed algorithm to cleverly blend what each lens is seeing, resulting in the creation of an accurate stereo "cylopean" image.All very technical, but for the 18.5 million people (source Microsoft) who regularly use webcams while they are using instant messengers, i2i means that it will appear as if users are looking into each others eyes. Antonio Criminisi, lead researcher of Microsoft’s Machine Learning and Perception Group, said."We were able to come up with an algorithm that was able to take two images and capture a corresponding map in 3D. Using this powerful technology, we can now synthetically create an image as if the person is looking straight into your eyes."According to Dr Criminisi, the biggest challenge for the backroom boys at Microsoft was in calculating how the visual brain works. In particular, how it sees and sorts out colors, shapes and distances."Essentially, what we have done is replace human eyes with cameras and the human brain with a computer."The real magic behind this technology is the newly developed stereo algorithm, which makes it possible to accurately reconstruct a 3D, geometric image in real time and on a standard computer. Fundamentally, this is the same technology which was used to recreate the stunning 3D images of the Martian surface, which were beamed back by the NASA rover.With the ability to generate realistic looking background images in order that users can pretend they are somewhere other than where they really are! Commenting, Dr Criminisi said."This is important for privacy, as I may not want you to see how untidy my bedroom is."A feature likely to capture the teens market is that of Smart Icons. Instead of typing in the usual pictorial emotion e.g. :) i2i can superimpose free floating, 3D ones which can then be instructed to float freely around a person’s head or anywhere else for that matter.While Dr Criminisi admits there are still issues to iron out before the project is passed on to Microsoft Development, he is pleased with what has been achieved in under two years. Dr Criminisi’s team is already experimenting with code which enables users to create their own wrap-around avatar, 3D face and then have it move as if it were their own.
