Hi Florian!

No irony intended :) I use tox myself for basicly anything that otherwise would be done face2face. The thing I especially like is that you do not have to create an account on a centralized server. Just create an ID, send it do somebody, accept his/her invitation and that's it. I've made a small script that fires up qTox when I plug in my usb headset :)

@protocol: well, it works. Is it secure? Kind of, did no analysis of it. Compared to mumble (which I had running 3 years ago) it's fine with low bandwidth (chat and audio, video is another thing), I can publish a screen or a defined region as video source (which is great for teaching), and there are no offline messages (email is for offline).
