How can I build a virtual "Skypeasaurus"?

Episode 1022 (1:11:17)

Svera from Oslo, Norway

Svera took Leo's advice to use a cheap HD video camera for his online TV channel. He's envious about the infamous Skypeasaurus. Can he create a virtual one? He's looking at using Google Hangouts, but it's difficult to get people using Google Plus. Leo says that Google Hangouts are a great solution for just starting out because it saves to YouTube automatically. Hangouts uses WebRTC on the backend, and Leo's considering using WebRTC for TWiT. But it does take some setup time if he has guests.

Leo also says that ooVoo is another option. Wirecast does it as well. Here's a tutorial.
