If you are using HipChat a feature I am sure you will need is the ability to start Video chats. This post is to show how to start a 1:1 Video Chat using Hip Chat.
My demonstration is using the Mac Desktop client of the HipChat application.
First is to select the person you want to start a video chat with from the list on the left hand side of the client. Once selected on the right hand side towards the top of the app you will see a collection of icons.
These two buttons control the video chat and voice chat respectively. Click on the Video Icon to start a video chat and the phone icon to start a voice chat.
