Science fiction continues to be peppered using this concept since before the television was a good widely, publicly accepted household technology. Video chat was featured in classics including H.G. Wells' novels, and early cinematic classics like Metropolis and Just Imagine.

While the technology was tried out as early since the late 1940s, it wasn't until the late 1990s that such technology was practical, affordable, along with fact, easy to use. While telephone companies offered video conferencing and other forms of video chat technologies to businesses as early as the late 1970s, it was rife with problems, including video and audio quality being poor and limited, the lines dropping, as well as the camera equipment being unacceptably obtrusive.

Like most technologies that become section of daily life, it sprung from something becoming practical to produce, and ultimately, affordable as well. Where once cameras that recorded video, of any sort, were inordinately expensive, now everything, from phones, computers and game consoles to HD front ends and televisions have small pinhole cameras stronger and quality compared to what movie studios a decade previously.

Thanks to this, better technology advocates can enjoy a wide selection of video chatting tools. Instant messengers such as AIM, ICQ and MSN have offered video features for their chat room functions for a good time, and dedicated live video and audio chatting applications like Skype are actually popular since around 2003 as well.

In recent years, now that the web experience itself has got more sophisticated thanks to things like AJAX, Flash and HTML 5, free video chat websites are immensely popular, and serve a large selection of niches including the random video chat system known as Chat Roulette, that enables users to randomly hook up to an incredible number of strangers for the same server and either see something regrettable, or make a new friend, either is entirely possible.

However, the web front end feature of programs like Chat Roulette is currently being adapted to serve live video chat in more useful, or practical ways. Many websites are becoming increasingly popular method of free video chat, allowing users who either can't use programs like Skype™, or perhaps only must operate such features on rare occasions to only do this without installing heavy applications and also the frameworks to guide them.

Another handy feature of the web-based free video chat services is that more devices can support them because there remain a few platforms, consoles and cellular devices which do not support the heavier application-based video chatting tools, which signifies that with this feature, more users can connect across a wider selection of platforms.

In the future, several developers have announced that their free video chat web applications might even support cross-network chatting, allowing a person to log in to the website, and chat using a Skype user, for example, or perhaps a video phone caller employing a cable service's HD front end.

As we as being a society look back, it's interesting to view that this future is often a sneaky thing, not announcing itself some day as having arrived, cherubs trumpeting its glorious descent upon the world. One has to appear at what one takes with no consideration as just part of "modern technology" to see the mysterious and alluring technological wonders from the past in fact exist here and now.
