ReelPortal Brings Free Cross Platform Video Chat to BlackBerry PlayBook


Back in March we told you that ReelPortal was bringing their cross platform Adobe Air video chat application to the BlackBerry PlayBook. Thuyen from ReelPortal let me know that it is now live in App World. Many users have been asking for a cross platform video chat application for the PlayBook and until Skype or another larger solution comes out ReelPlayer is the only one I know of. The app is designed to work on multiple OS’s so you can video chat with users from their PC through the app.

  • video conference with multiple friends
  • join a public room, or create your own locked private room
  • supports both P2P and client/server connections
  • Persistent connection allows switching between Wi-Fi and 3G without dropping connections
  • Use it as a nanny-cam or video monitoring system
  • ReelPortal is room-centric. You automatically connect to everyone in a room when you enter with no need to call them individually.

  1. My reelportal can’t connect to server,

  2. Pretty cool, but not sure than most people will be willing to install yet another chat app on their desktop

  3. RIM give us OoVoO, Yahoo Messenger with voice and video call ability, Skype and Qik. I’m not too crazy about Skype specially since it sucks on the Androids but OoVoO ROCKS on everything even phone portable device to computer plus you can conference call. Please bring Yahoo Messenger to the PB SOOON!

  4. no need to install, it also have web version

  5. just go to

  6. If I install Reel Portal on my Playbook, can I have a hassle free videochat with a skype user?
