Saw this on another forum....
(please note that I have not tried downloading or installing this app. I just noticed it somewhere else and thought people here might want to give it a try)

Squidge 0.3

http://macdaddyworld.com/2007/08/15/hooray-for-sample-app/ heres a link containing the source files. works great! just be sure you set the permissions on the files to 775. heres the directions from the self contained pdf.

Squidge.app

Videoconferencing for iPhone

To install:
Install Squidge.app into the Applications folder on your iPhone, and then reboot the phone.
Sorry, but we can't provide instructions on getting apps onto your iPhone. You should be able to
find instructions elsewhere on the web.
To run:
0) You will need a buddy with an iPhone and Squidge installed.
1) Call your buddy and put them on speakerphone.
2) Ensure that you have a Wifi connection, and then launch the Squidge application.
3) You will be presented with your contact list. Select your buddy's iPhone from the contact list.
4) That's it! You are now sending video to our server. Any imagery that your buddy sends to the server should now be displayed on your iPhone.

I also found this bit of info:

In order for Squidge to run, BSD Subsystem needs to be installed. I also installed Terminal to run the executable command.

1.) Create a directory in the folder Applications (I used iBrickr) and name it 'Squidge.app' but without the ' '
2.) After the folder has been made, put the 3 files into our newly made folder.
3.) From Terminal (remotely or on the iPhone) type 'chmod+x /Applications/Squidge.app/Squidge' and once again without the ' ' (If you typed this line incorrectly, you would receive an error message; otherwise, you shouldn't receive any message)
4. Reboot your iPhone to enjoy Squidge.

Work on 3.0?

i know this was a long time ago, but will this work on the new 3.0? Please test it out. I can't tell if it does, because it keeps crashing everytime i try to open the Squidge icon on my iPhone. Am I SSHing it incorrectly to my iPhone? All permissions are set recursively to 775. In Cyberduck, it shows that it has its own Squidge.app folder and in it there are 3 files, (Default.png, Info.plist, and Sqidge) They are the only files that were given from the first site. Please let me know, Thanks! :)
