I'm a Skype user but to be honest I can't bring myself to vote for it due to the often poor quality of the calls, the recent dumbing down of the interface, and the lack of configuration settings in the new Skype for Desktop. However, it is *still* the only real game in town, and has been for many years to my dismay.

Messenger for Desktop might prove to be a good alternative but Messenger is of course tied into the Facebook empire.

I would vote for Wire .It took some doing ,but I finally got family and friends to use it.Video call quality is great even on overseas calls.
One of the best days was when I typed "removepkg Skype".

ps.I see Wire is included in "Secure Messaging Application of the Year".

I never do video chats, but I found Tox to be a good recommendation for those who use them.
