Camfrog Video Chat Editor's Review

Camfrog is a free web chatting service developed by Camshare LLC. The application offers different types of video chatting services like private calls, broadcasting videos and video enabled chat rooms. Approximately 90 million downloads and the fact that the service has lakhs of online users establishes its popularity. Their packages can be accessed on their official website.The service offers text, voice and video messaging.

Camfrog is compatible with Windows as well as Mac computers. Additionally, the app is also available for mobile phones. It can be downloaded for free from the Camfrog website fairly quickly. Thisapplication will need about 11.8 MB of space to get installed on your PC.

An internet connection, PC and webcam will be required to use this service. It works better with faster internet connections as they allow images to be streamed speedily. Also, DSL or cable broadband services support Camfrog better. Additionally, the service can even operate behind firewalls, routers and wireless networks. Also, the service can be used without webcams. In this case, users will be allowed to talk and see others but images from their end will not be transmitted.

At first, its interface might seem to be a little confusing, but it looks easy after using it for a couple of times. Camfrog applications have a friendly interface that resembles standard internet messaging applications. Its webcam chat rooms have neatly arranged room listings. About 6000 rooms are usually available on the portal at any time. There is a general and top 50 tab separating different types of rooms. A great feature offered is that the service has chat rooms for the deaf too.

The number of users in each room is displayed alongside their names. The fan following of each room along with the points it has scored and the room profile is also listed besides the names. This helps new users to assess the popularity of each room.  

A personal profile needs to be created after registering an account with Camfrog. There is an option of joining a running chat room or hosting a private one. The advantage with privately hosted rooms is that the subject matter and users who join in can be controlled.

The experience of chatting in the rooms is unparalleled as it allows users to hear and read messages from others in real time. Apart from this users can watch each other live and see what the other person is doing. The service can be availed to talk to family and friends or even to meet new people. It offers options of text, audio and video chat. It also supports exchange of files and photos. It facilitates one to one conversations and also group chats. There is also a private chat facility which supports video and audio chats between two people.

The service even has people search which allows checking out profiles and online status of other users by pointing on their nicknames. In fact, the search has filters like age, name, location and many others. A profile picture taken from the user’s camera is also displayed. Apart from just searching people, Camfrog even allows adding users to the contact list. Also, Camfrog offers different ways of communicating apart from chats such as sending messages and virtual gifts.

The service incorporates many other fun features such as adding text messages in videos and blocking messages with IM Catcher. However, contacts added over Camfrog cannot be blocked which is definitely annoying. Another drawback with Camfrog is that it does not have PC to PC calling. Furthermore, the service doesn’t even permit calling mobile and landline phones.

The user directory of the web chat service displays people who are online. Moreover, texting, voice chatting and video captures occur in the same window, which makes the application very easy to manage. In fact, it supports opening of several video windows at the same time.

Navigating through the Camfrog network and using it is a cinch. But, it also has numerous features which provide assistan ceifusing Camfrog getscomplicated. There is a link for help and support on which solutions to common problems are listed together. There is also FAQs section on the site along with a user guide. Moreover, Camfrog also has a blog which users can join.

Additionally, the controls onCamfrog enhance its utilitarian value. Firstly, the language interface can be changed. Its parental controls are extremely rigorous. There is also an option of privacy settings to keep profiles confidential. Moreover, the stringent security ensures that no minors enter the room. However, a downside with Camfrog’s security policy is that it only offers password protection. Another security negative of Camfrog is that it knowingly allows its users to broadcast prerecorded videos which often mislead people. Furthermore, many of these videos are of other Camfrog users, which are secretly recorded without their consent.

Above all, Camfrog applies superior technology to provide high quality videos. Furthermore, these videos do not take over CPU usage. Rather, they restrict it to the bare minimum. The moderators keep tab of the ambiance in rooms. A cordial environment is maintained by allowing only well mannered users to participate in chats.

Positive Points
 -   Camfrog can be used for easy chatting with old pals or to meet new people.
 -   There is wide variety of chartrooms available to join.
 -   Doesn’t take much of users’ computer resources to run or stream webcam videos.

Negative Points:
 -   Camfrog does not allow PC to PC calling.
 -   Poor security measures.
 -   Limited functionality for free users.

Conclusion:
Camfrog is excellent for chatting with acquaintances who are on Camfrog or meeting new people in chat rooms. The biggest drawback of Camfrog is the free version has limited functions and does not even satisfy the requirements from a regular chat client like maintaining conversations logs or file sharing.

Rating: 3.5/5
