I've used Skype for voice frequently and been very happy with it. When I
was in China last year and Skype had the "call any US phone for free from
within the US" special going I was able to VPN into work (Pittsburgh) and
Skype thought I was in the US so I could call home for free. I tried a
video chat from there but the latency was too bad most of the time. That
said, voice worked well and video works great in the US and I often use it
to talk to friends in Europe. IIRC skype also does point-to-point
encryption for chat sessions so they may encrypt video and audio too.
