This is the only program I was able to locate to do a/v between my folks and myself. So far it has worked flawlessly. The image quality could be a little better but who's complaining?

Shortly after posting the previous review, we were contacted numerous times by the owner of SqidCam and several of his associates. This matter is resolved.

It was NOT our intention to bad mouth this company, it's product, nor it's efforts. We posted our comments about the problem we were having, hoping those of you who got the program working, would write to us, telling us what WE were doing wrong.

We hope that all of you reading this will try SQUIDCAM, as it is the best one available!

We have left three phone messages at the support number given at SquidCam's site and they have not return any. I made a trip to our offices in Florida (from Arizona), specifically to set up video conferencing between the two offices, to cut down on phone bills.

On each message, I told the support phone recording machine, the information above and that I was going to be here for only 5 days and now I leave tomorrow morning (Sunday) without a single reply from anyone. I called each time eaxctly in the middle of the day (for them), but could not find a human to assist me to save my life.

Thank God for iChatAV. We turned it on and it ran with no problems whatsoever. At least I am leaving with some form of video conferencing working. I sure wish I could get a refund on SquidCam as it has never worked yet. I have PC and MAC versions (yes I paid the extra $$ amount to get both and nothing on either. We followed every one of their :suggestions" to get things working, listed on their site. Nothing.

Oh, I get my own camera shot perfectly, but I know how great I look I wanted everyone else to know too.

If there's a line forming to get a refund, could someone save me a place?

jw (very unhappy squid)

Please check your spam filters!

In this case, we have called the customer three times and (as of this morning) sent three support messages. Originally we were contacted on the MLK holiday (office closed), a second voicemail we received was from the following day, which is when we attempted contact. Unfortunately, it still looks like we're getting nowhere. I'm sorry Joseph hasn't received any of our replies and I'm glad he was able to find a solution. However, there's only so much we can do to contact a customer short of driving to Arizona and knocking on the door. Not trying to sound callous btw.

No stars for quality or performance. Bad to the core.

Great app - lot's of options that iChat AV doesn't have. Lower res/framerate works great with slower Macs on which iChat AV struggles. Works great with iSight. Asked for a mirror option and it showed up a couple of days later - awesome.

Really excellent. Works flawlessly. Works first time. The best out there as far as I'm concerned.
