This step by step guide will let you video chat with your friends in minutes. Setup Facebook Video Chat:
#1 Go to the Facebook Video calling page.
#2. Click on Get Started Button.
#3. You need to install an additional program. You’ll be prompted to do so, when you receive a call or when you click on the video chat icon in the upper right corner of your chat box. Facebook Video Call Plug-in is just 482 KB, when you run the setup, it downloads some additional files.
#4. As a standard Skype call, no video opens until the receiver picks up the call.
#5. When they do so, you’ll be able to chat with them. If they didn’t reply, you can leave a video message for them. You get a option to add videos in your private messages and video messages share the same inbox as the text messages.
#6. The Facebook video chat functions like a light version of Skype.
