Homer Conferencing

Homer is a free cross-platform video conferencing software. It implements a VoIP-Softphonee based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and is compatible to other SIP based software or devices. Homer supports an unlimited amount of simultaneous live video and audio chats. Movies as well as music files can be presented during a conference. Homer can also be used to remotely observe the activites on a desktop screen. For all these tasks the software doesn't need a server infrastructure. Depending on the current application and available network resources, the software is able to transmit video and audio data both in low and high quality streams.
