There is no practical way to do video chat with multiple people using Skype. You could build something like Skypeasurus, but that is probably more expensive and complicated than you want.

You can now. It is a new paid feature in Skype. There is a 7-day free trial. See Skype - Group Video Calling

For a free option, see Google+ Hangouts.

What you want to do is host a conference call, which allows you to communicate with 3 or even more contacts at once. This article, How to Make a Three-Way Call with Skype, describes all the required steps in a straightforward way.

Does that work with video? I know it does for voice. –  Vandelizer Oct 19 '09 at 2:21
