Firefox Hello Video Chat - first looks as screenshots (Review)
The 1 on 1 video chat tool which was just re-released on Firefox promises to be 'easier to use' for one to one video chats than other online video tools since no login or account setup is required. These 11 annotated screenshots are from my first round of testing as a non-signed in user.

My initial announcement post is here: http://goo.gl/XaAh5c

The first 4 screen shots show what it is like to Start up a video call via the Firefox Browser. Then the next 4 images show what you see when you are Joining into a video call that someone else started (using Firefox or Chrome browsers). And the final 3 screenshots outline some of the things you see when Returning to the 'conversation' at a later time - what I am calling reusing the reserved URL of the video call.

I'm a fan of Google Hangouts as many know, but wanted to give this new video chat tool a test to see what it offers.

Kind of lean on functionality, but...
There are no extra tools (like screenshare - which I really missed), and it is only for 2 people at a time. But the fact you can share a link with someone and as long as they are using a WebRTC enabled browser (i.e. Chrome & Firefox), the invited party can join you in your Firefox initiated call is pretty nice.

For those of you wondering what this all looks like, I've made these visual notes for you to review. Read the annotations I've included to get more details.

My take:
Firefox Hello is not a replacement for Google's multi-person Hangout Video Call, not as useful for collaboration, and there is no broadcast-turn-into-a-video (Hangout on Air) function, plus the different interfaces you'll see depending on being the initiator or the invitee could be confusing... but it looks like a viable quick video chatting tool if people are using the proper browsers and just have not got their head around using Hangout Video Calls yet. I think it is a good start, and time will tell what other features get added in the future.

For most uses, I still like Hangouts better, and so can you if you learn how they work! For a step-by-step way to learn Hangouts…

+Ronnie Bincer​ I had a negative experience. It just crashed the browser once, refused even the built-in cam once resulting in audio only, and was ok once.

I assume your phrase HVC is referring to the previous HO correct? Google changed their phraseology but I've not adjusted my own phrase. Never understood the change. To me it sounds like Skype and early video conferencing. But that's just me.

11 Ways to Repurpose Your Content
This is a great article by +Rebekah Radice on the topic of Repurposing. She includes 11 actionable ideas on how to do it in this linked article.

If you have wondered what might be some simple steps to get started, this is the post for you. I often find that I am so busy with upcoming projects that I neglect some of the basics shown here, so this posting is not just to help you, but to encourage me to get more serious about the value and tactics of repurposing my content.

Do you use any of these ideas already?

Thanks +Ronnie Bincer! I find that it's really easy for most content creators to get stuck in a rut, creating the same type of content over and over. It's fun to mix it up and keeps it interesting for the audience!

HOA Tip... Check your surroundings before joining
When you are invited as a Hangout on Air (HOA) guest there are a couple screens you see before you Join Into a HOA filmstrip.

The first one you see requires you to agree to the terms and conditions of the Hangout on Air... things like you agree you may be broadcast and recorded, etc.

The next screen you'll see after agreeing to the terms is the one pictured here. It has a big Green Join Button so you can enter the HOA interface and interact with the other members of the call inside the HOA interface.

You may not know if the HOA has started broadcasting or not, so it is a good idea to take a moment here and look at what you see around you. Is what you are showing what you want others to see?

You may want to move things around a bit (papers on the desk, drinks on the table, etc.) before you press the Join button. Once you press "Join", your view won't be as focused on you as this screen shows, but if you like, you can pin your own thumbnail to see a similar view again once inside the filmstrip.

Learn more about the Hangout Interface so you are ready to handle all it offers you.

Live Chat via Hangouts chat in search results?
Not sure how to make this an option for your business yet, but interesting to see that it is being tested.

Since hangouts are not just video but also a text chat environment, I thought you might be interested in seeing this. Looks like that kind of chat can't turn into a video type, or maybe it can. Hard to tell from the screenshot.

h/t" +Denis Labelle & +Johan Claeys for the alerts to related articles.

Hangout Mastery Members Only Q&A session re. Hangouts
This is a Private HOA for Hangout Mastery members in a Public Event.

Before the start time, I'll add in the HOA video for you to test the play arrow. If you can press that play arrow and you see the countdown timer you are using the proper account. If it tells you that the Video is Private then you will need to sign out of YouTube or G+ with the 'other account' and sign in again using the same account you use in our Private Membership Community. More details here http://goo.gl/ujenXX

This is a monthly event for Hangout Mastery members... if you are a member (new or long-time member), please feel free to leave a comment/question about Hangouts or your membership. You can also ask to be in the filmstrip for this one in our private community.

Please realize that the Public (anyone) can see the comments here. I set it up this way so we can bring your questions/comments on screen via the Comment Tracker tool.

Not a Member yet but you're interested in joining us?... check out Hangout Mastery info at bit.ly/HangoutMastery

Firefox Hello - video calls/video chat
This video calling feature from Firefox uses WebRTC compatible browsers (Firefox & Chrome are 2 that support it right now). No account setup is required, send a link to the chat and they can join the call with you.

No connection that I see (yet) for a broadcast like a Hangout on Air, and I've not really learned all the details, but the fact you can do a video call with someone without needing to sign in or register will be helpful to many until they run into more limitations.

I've attached this short intro video on FireFox Hello: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEPq4xFGzG0

Here's the official announcement page from Firefox/Mozilla:
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/hello/

Both users in Firefox works, or one starting in Firefox and the other joining via a link in Chrome could work as well (both support WebRTC).

I'm sure that we'll see more about this soon. It apparently is not a new service, but it has just been re-released.

Update: I've done a review on how this works including annotated screenshots here: http://goo.gl/LRRctr

Have you used it yet?
What are your thoughts on it?

+Craig Long sure... assuming that the "Hello" video chat link is permanent, then shortening it/branding it as a virtual video room might work nicely.

With Hello video chat we need not be concerned about account status (and for a 1 to 1 conversation via hangout video call, I don't think we need be concerned with account status either.. they called that Hangouts Lite in the past). HOA is a different story, or a Hangout Video call with more than just 2 people.
