Whats the best audio/video group conferencing tool (without major bugs or CPU usage)?

Skype isn't particularly excellent software (after more than 10 years), yet people are using it – mostly because they can't find anything better, I suppose.

    Efficient video meetings with up to 12 people!

    Appear.in runs in the browser, with no software needed or log in required. Pretty solid connections I find.

    I love Appear in and also recommend it. Just send a link to the people you want to chat to.

      I really love the software and we're using it at picksaas to do video conferencing. The best thing about is it that everybody can enter with just one link, like the simplicity!

      Best video conference tools I've ever used! Skip those first 10 minutes of meetings on Skype that people just say "Can you hear me? How about now?", and just start talking!

    Teams for Wire

    If security and privacy are important then Wire is the end-to-end encrypted, Europe-based alternative that allows up to 10 participants in a call. Works in a web browser but also has desktop and mobile clients.

    Cloud video conferencing and simple online meetings

    Zoom is great for stability, multi person conversations, has mobile apps, and can record a call and export video and MP3 files.

      The audio quality is so bad that it's the same level as a payphone. Really not worth paying money for when there are better solutions.

  5. Discord is one of the more promising candidates, yet it's still lacking screen sharing feature. Many people will try to replace Skype with it, once that feature is there…
