Two of the US developers of the file-sharing platform known as Napster, Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning, have recently reunited and started a new service for friends to video chat online.
Founders of Napster now created a new service called AirTime at the event featuring such Hollywood stars as Jim Carrey, talk show host Jimmy Fallon, and TV star Joel McHale. Rapper Snoop Dogg and actress Olivia Munn also made an appearance as live video chats.
Because of the technical difficulties, video chats between the celebrities could only last 10 minutes, and the creators were trying to fix the problems during the event. Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning plan to overcome such difficulties as soon as possible, because their new service will be implemented by Facebook soon. Therefore, only Facebook users will be able to use AirTime.
Meanwhile, Sean Parker explained that AirTime isn’t going to rival established social networks, but instead act like a separate social network itself. They want to make the online space a fun place to visit, with your friends being able to video chat with each other online, while allowing them remain anonymous. The new company will ensure users’ safety, because it became one of the prime concerns of the modern Internet users. Sean Parker explained that the new service founders are trying to restore serendipity to the web, and pointed out that there’s never been an environment like AirTime’s for live online performance.
However, when asked how Napster changed everything a decade ago, its founders claimed that they had no idea of the impact this would have. All they realized was that the product was big, but they dramatically underestimated the scale.

|MSN and Yahoo and AIM and Skype and ICQ and many other messengers have offered video chat for some time already.|
Website video chat is nothing new, either.
tinychat, ivideochat, oovoo, stickam, paltalk, and others have done this for a while and they don't have problems that cause the video to stop after 10 min.
being only for facebook is just... hah! just what that place needs: additional buggy addons.
|To be honest if they use new compression techniques and so on they could be successful since they would be acccssible by even 1mb net users, not to mention if they can get it to work with facebook mobile, then even android and blackberry users will have a simple alternative to apple's facetime (not to mention apple users too lol). But the most promissing part if the annonimity, since you would not talk to a stranger over webcam if they know your details, but a group chat would be possible with friends of friends and multiple users all at the same time and no one knows who the others are and can talk and get to know each other safely.||
