Flip Chat started out as a random chat site where you can video chat with random stranger one at a time, not knowing who you will get when you press the Next button.

The idea of Chatroulette is to match random strangers for a one on one video chat.

It’s a dream come true for exhibitionists and people with too much time on their hands, if they know what they are getting into.

If you’re bored and tired with Chatroulette or if the site happens to be down, you should check out some of its alternatives.

The video chat services I will introduce here however, are not deserted Chatroulette clones.

They all offer something unique and are backed up by a community, which has made them attractive destinations for Chatroulette refugees.

Rounds is a Facebook application and a hybrid of the social network and Chatroulette.

You can video chat with friends on Facebook who also use Rounds, meet new people, and make new friends.

If you enjoy video chatting with random strangers, and meet someone you want to chat with later, you can add them to your friends list and stay in touch via private email messages through Flip Chat.

You can also rate people, view their profiles, and send them instant messages when they are online, no matter what chatroom they are in.
