    Default Videotelephony

    Aside from audio communication the most recent and commonly used these days is the real-time process of communication which is videotelephony. This process is commonly defined as to video communication. Most probably this transmission of audio-video signals are used by most of our messaging platforms as well as social media. As an example are Skype, Tango, even Facebook has its feature of video calling.

    Voice calling over the internet, otherwise known as VOIP is quickly becoming the next big thing, and while Skype have been using that technology for a few years now, more and more companies are getting into the market and most messaging software these days also incorporates voice calling without actually using any minutes of a voice calling plan, but using the internet data instead.

    some old is still gold. theres an old software called ekiga that lets you make direct IP to IP call, even with H323 based proprietary systems like polycom. very useful if you are on a VPN.

    Voice over IP is in demand with regards to communication over the internet. Can we talk about the relation of video to this communication process? Is video conferencing not considered VoIP at all? All I read is more on VoIP itself, but the topic is about the incorporation of video in VoIP.

    I think video communication over the internet is also one of the best aspects that are popularly known at this era. Some messaging apps uses video streaming to have a real-time interaction to other person over the internet. This process of communication is very important based on users demand.

    video conferencing through internet, mainly H323 protocol, is more than 15 years old. earlier it was done over 128 kbps ISDN lines, now its done through broadband.

    I have been using Skype for years. Then I found Tango. Now they have Snapchat and Facetime. They keep coming out with all of these different sites for people to keep in touch and be able to see each other while they talk. It was in all of the futuristic movies way back when, and everybody was just waiting for it to come into reality. Now everybody is so into themselves that they can't help but have their whole lives played out online. Some people think that once they hang up that it all gets erased, but people can record the conversations and they will be online forever. I personally hate these sites, especially when I'm not looking my best. I long for the time when I didn't have to worry about the way I look to talk on the phone.

    Security is still an issue when it comes to using Voip and I think while the actual site itself will do all it can to make the conversation secure, a lot of people don't do enough at their own end and leave chats open and don't clear cached areas, and then complain if they get compromised
