Default video chat recommendations?

I want to use the front facing camera and use video chatting, anyone have recommendations?
I know sprint comes with the stock Qik video but I heard it wasn't really good...
Surprisingly the skype app does not have video chat. I know oovoo does and hear Tango is popular but just wanted to get some feedback from you guys.

I've used Tango and Qik. Qik seemed to give a clearer picture than Tango.

From my research it seems all 3rd party video chat is pretty poor (plus I don't trust 3rd party apps with complete access to my contact data). I've tried video chat on Google talk on my Gingerbread ROM'ed Evo, and it works very well.

I'm really excited that Epic is going to receive Gingerbread soon (there have been several recent 2.3 leaks), and I would love to have official Google Video chat via Google Talk on my Epic.
Big thanks to lunatic59 for my awesome Android avatars!!
