# Setting up video conferences

Thursday, 07 August 2008 22:02
I'd really like to get some software together to make video conferencing easier. There are video sip clients out there, but most cost money....or are proprietary/closed.

VLC - videolan client
VideoLAN - Free and Open Source software and video streaming solutions for every OS!
VLC is a powerful tool when dealing with video. It provides streaming functions...so it could be used for network video broadcasts. You can use it to stream your webcam using RTP.
