What do you all use for video chatting with the loved ones?

Skype for Android is nothing short of horrible and I would like a change.

Thanks!

I used Oovoo to chat with my friends in other states a couple of nights ago during our annual fantasy football draft. It was pretty decent.

facetime all the way.

if you have a macbook you can use the built in camera, that's a favorite of mine for long distance chats with family and friends.

This, although I don't like that function because it's super annoying when you happen to close the browser window. The program basically shuts down.

Sometimes if we're apart we use Skype, but we find it quite frustrating. It keeps freezing.

There is a facility to use windows live messenger with a webcam, normally we use one or the other of those.
