Anyone know a bluetooth-enabled video chat app?

Have tried: Skype, Tango, Fring, Qik. Of them:

Skype is buggy as hell and only works with a bluetooth for voice calls, no video.

Fring is reliable but, again, bluetooth does not work during video calls.

Tango: video calls are the best of the batch for video quality, but not bluetooth compatible at ALL that I could find, and the audio loops back horribly when used over speakerphone.

Qik: Video splits itself into four segments, then pinstripes those four segments. Didn't even try bluetooth due to non-functional video.

I've submitted feedback to the first three to please include bluetooth support for video calls but never received a response. Does anyone know of another app that *does* offer bluetooth video call support? My girlfriend wants to watch me drive while we talk *shrug*

Actualy you are the first one I seen ask flor this option, I do not think any of the video char apps support this ... I guess this option could be useful somewhat.

Well my need for it is honestly pretty silly, but I can see how it might be useful for someone to, say, use a video chat app in a noisier environment successfully. And as 4g becomes prevalent, video calls on-the-go are going to become more and more common.

i guess i've never even considered this either. i gigure if i'm close enough to the device to be video calling, then the speaker works just fine. it would be a nice option though.
