I'm not familiar with Hangouts and probably should know the answer, but I don't.
I've always (strictly as a viewer) used my computer to watch. I have a web cam, but it's not mounted and the Snowball Microphone is great for voice recognition, but not so sure it's optimal for video chat applications.
Anyway, is the Ipad or Iphone a good choice or does it even work at all? Any guidance would be appreciated.
Satan got you by the hand
and he's singing in your ear,
leading you on a merry dance
in a ballroom filled with fear.
