How To Install Facebook Video Calling / Video Chat
I just installed Facebook video chat after finding the directions over on Engadget.
Go to the Facebook Video Calling Getting Started Page.

Click SAVE when prompted to save the Video Calling Plug-in.
The video calling plug-in is downloaded.
You then open the downloaded file to install it.
This takes a few moments.
RUN the saved file.

Once installed, the CALL button with an image of a video camera shows up on friends pages who have installed the Video Calling App.
Once installed, there will be less of a barrier for Facebook users to make video calls.
It'll be interesting to see the adoption.

When on a call, if you have multiple cameras attached to your computer, you can switch between cameras using the camera dropdown menu at the bottom of the video chat window.
