Is there any application I can use on a Mac and people can use on their iPhones 4 to do video calls?

If beyond Mac OS X apps you can also mention Ubuntu Linux and WIndows apps that can do that too, I appreciate.

As far as I checked, skype is not an option.

Apple just released a beta version of Facetime for Mac. With it you can "make video calls to iPhone 4, the new iPod touch, or another Mac".

The simple answer is that once FaceTime gets published, a host of existing applications will likely support it - Skype, Google Voice, iChat, and many more. This will also likely make its way to Android and Windows phones as well. Just a matter of time.

but beyond facetime... there's any application that can do that? I mean video calls between linux, windows, mac and iphone 4? – SpaceDog Oct 1 '10 at 17:25
I think you misunderstood my answer. FaceTime is not just an application, it is a protocol. Other applications will likely support this protocol in the future, meaning that someone on a Windows PC could, using Skype with FaceTime support, make a video call to someone else with an iPhone 4. – Joshua Oct 1 '10 at 18:19

iMovicha, requires jailbreaking the iPhone but it works on all other systems including Android.
