CamCom Chat is a good chat at an excellent value. It uses Flash, PHP and a peer to peer transfer protocol to offer a great desktop chat experience. CamComChat offers Webmasters the ability to add a webcam chat to their site without paying a monthly bill for the hosting of a media-server; this is how CamComs stands out from its competitors. However its dependence on Flash™ means it can not work for anyone on a mobile device. Perhaps they will add a fall-back option in the future but it likely would not include webcam capability.
CamComChat offers several additional add-ons including a Pay Per Minute package that allows you to charge users for cam time. This could be used for customer support, consultations or private 1:1 video chats. The money is deposited directly into your PayPal account.
Aside from not offering 1:many webcams CamCom Chat has a lot to offer a desktop chatter. But we would like to see them add an HTML option to allow mobile access. By 2020 support for Flash will come to an end for many browsers we hope to see a major update to this software before then.
