This software is nicely done, but what is truly a disappointment is the way the communities are set up. After getting used to Yahoo! and Google, participating in iSpQ communities is a huge letdown.

End users have the ability of create their own special "rooms", but these exist only as a long as you are online. So communities cannot actually thrive continually, as "My Room" revolves around you, not your specific interest.

Let's face it: iSpQ is software for men who want to view naked women, and for women who want peddle their bodies online. The rest of the end users are banished to "Clean Chat" for conversations that fall along the lines of "hi", "show me your " or otherwise similar come-ons. The other channels on iSpQ are all but deserted (what the hell is a "Ruby" room anyway?)

In the end, iSpQ is really supposed to be about like minded-people getting together. To that end, the software succeeds if its aim is to attract the lowest tier of Internet culture. The rest of us who have more interesting things to say (or even show on webcam) go to the more popular online communities, even if video isn't supported.

I think you need to get your head out of very negative thoughts.

Why is the screenshot of iSpQ a picture of the Windows version ?

iSpQ is the best video chat program on the market today! It combines ease of use with the highest quality audio and video experience in addition to helpful and knowledgeable support staff.

If it helps anyone. I think ports 2000, 2001, and 2002 have to be open for ISPQ to work properly.

I've used it for a couple yrs both under classic and OSX without problems.

Hey.. this software sucks! dont work fine, have a lot of terrible options and they dont work !

you can try Yahoo Messenger! ...its better, simple, and free.. support many webcams (by free drivers) and you dont need pay for.....
with iSPQ you need buy TWO copies (one for you and other for your people, of course!)
dont be a looser...

Yahoo messenger bombs on me constantly and the video is choppy. After configuring my ports properly for ispq, it works flawlessly and the video is great.

Same. Trying 6.0 and looks better thatn prev versions. But can't get videochat working and can't find anything on how to handle firewall if you need 2. To bad because it looks like it could be good and cross platform.
The quickmessage is going but don't see me using it after a few times. I

I've used iSpQ, ICUII, iVisit, CuSeeMe, iChat AV.. you name it. I remember when it was between ICUII and iSpQ, and it looked like iSpQ was a cheap rip-off of ICUII.

Then.. ICUII dropped Mac support. That was some 3-4 years ago, and they haven't been back since. In that time, iSpQ has really surpassed anything ICUII could've ever dreamed of, and I'm happy to see they've now got the Mac version on full par with the Windows version.

iSpQ 6.0 really is a totally different ballgame from past versions. I've been beta testing this for the last 4-5 months now, and I'm glad they've finally got all the bugs worked out. Now they support full video and audio chat with up to 4 different people at a time, Quick Messages (ispq's version of IM'ing people) with Audio, Video, and full-color text/font styling support, directory chat, directory listings, and apparently (though I've not had a chance to test it) their "MyPlace" feature is working, too.

I just wish this program would get adopted by more people, cause it really is a great app/community. But, the price tag tends to scare people away, I guess.
