Jitsi looks very impressive *if* you're running your own server. 
Everything is encrypted from end to end *except* on the server itself, 
so you probably don't want to use their cloud server if you're looking 
for security.

...and as long as you're not running linux. I gave it two attempts and 
decided they're not quite ready for the big leagues yet. Too many unmet 
java dependencies. All I got launching from a commandline was pages of 
java errors and a hung application. Launching from the menu after 
installation was worse - just a hung app that had to be kill -9ed. 
Seemed to work fine on OSX though, once I figured out that the prefs 
panel was hidden behind the main window.

But I like the idea a lot, especially in terms of low latency - it's 
basically a passthrough that supports encrypted communications.
