Camfrog Video Chat 6.8 Build 391

User-friendly program that comes bundled with instant messaging, various chat rooms and video chat, rich suite of configuration settings, fast loading time, as well as privacy features and parental control
Camfrog Video Chat is an intuitive software application designed to help you join live video chat rooms, chat with your friends, as well as take part in multi-user video conferences. You may communicate via video, audio, or VOIP sessions.

Create a new profile

At the end of the installation process you are required to create a new profile by providing details about the nickname, password, gender, birthday, email address, and location.

Plus, you can make the application automatically sign in, save your passwords, as well as sing in as invisible.

Join video chat rooms

Camfrog Video Chat gives you the freedom to join the main Camfrog room or choose between several chat rooms. You may refresh the list with chat rooms and perform search operations.

The tool displays a list with all available users for the current chat room and reveals the number of total users in real-time. Right clicking on any user lets you view the webcam, add the current user to the contact list, chat with a friend using the IM service, block contacts, send files, take snapshots, insert emoticons, and get information about someone’s profile.

Additionally, you may view a list with notifications, send an instant message, specify a status that appears next to your nickname, create your own chat room, as well as pick the privacy mode, namely Online, Away, Busy or Available.

Rich suite of configuration settings

The program sports a multi-tabbed configuration panel where you can tweak parameters for running the utility at Windows startup, animating contact list, assigning hotkeys, and setting the away mode after a user-defined period of time of inactivity or when you lock your computer.

When it comes to IM & Chat settings, you may activate tabbed IM windows, join video chat rooms on startup, display your local time to IM buddies, reveal timestamp for every message, automatically answer to private calls, accept incoming calls with a password, pick the saving directory for file transfers, set the talk time limit, and make yourself heard to all visible users.

What’s more, you can make the app ask for confirmations for various actions (e.g. close tabbed IM window, start video broadcasting), activate sound notifications for incoming messages, buddy logon, privacy chat request and other options, and show popup windows when contacts come online and go offline.

Parental control mode, privacy options, video and audio control

Parental Controls features enable you to deny new nickname additions and registration, log all instant messages and block several functions, such as video viewing and broadcasting, audio listening, text chat, instant messaging and more.

For users concerned with their privacy, they can hide their popularity, disable profile comments, conceal the room they are in, enable a filter for bad words, keep history of IM messages, as well as manage the list with blocked and visible users.

You can set up parameters for picking the video and audio capturing devices and adjusting the playback volume and Camfrog sound volume.

Bottom line

Camfrog Video Chat brings together instant messaging, various chat rooms and video chat into an intuitive environment. There’s support for plenty of configuration settings, the tool works flawlessly and loads new messages very quickly, while the privacy features and parental control mode let you block several options.
