While you could spend hours searching the Internet for the best places to chat via video, I have prepared my own top picks list based on user-friendliness and service quality. Editor's Note: While these free webcam sites offer strict guidelines for users, be forewarned, content on any of these sites could include images not safe for work, or could potentially violate local laws or community standards.

In recent days, this site has become something of a sophomoric and pornographic romp, however, as reviewed here on More » As a better alternative to Facebook Chat, the Chatville service is an exciting way to get the experience of anonymous webcam chat, but under the safety umbrella of Facebook.

The app allows Facebook users to connect one-on-one to friends they know, and even anonymous Facebook users, and includes security options to protect from x-rated material. More » Omegle, like Chat Roulette, is a free webcam site that offers dual-paned anonymous chat, in addition to anonymous text-based chat.

Despite its simple design, this site gets plenty of traffic, and surprisingly, a few good conversations every once in awhile. More » With more emphasis on webcam chat and conferencing, Oovoo offers a very valuable service, in that users can webcam chat for free with not one, but two people at once!

Oovoo also offers premium webcam conferencing services for up to six. More » Free webcam site Paltalk is a favorite of mine, offering webcam chatrooms with users from across the country.

Unlike other services specializing in anonymous chat, Paltalk users must register, making it easier to keep track of user abuses.

An adult content filter also protects Paltalk users, rating rooms based on the possibility of adult webcam content. More » Tiny Chat is perhaps one of the most innovative, making the creation of webcam chats for you and friends fast and easy.

In addition to private chat with friends, public chat rooms make meeting new friends anonymously easy.

I highly recommend Tiny Chat as an alternative to Chat Roulette, in that there are multiple safety settings and a clear effort to keep Tiny Chat clean.

More » Singles know Woo Me as a free webcam site devoted to helping people meet, but regardless of your relationship status, Woo Me serves as another great place for webcam chat.

The service is free to join, and meeting people is fast and easy.

If it is anonymous webcam chat you seek, checkout Woo Me's new anonymous webcam site, Shuffle People.
