Veek is my attempt at writing something like Skype/Google hangouts but which is slightly less infuriating to use and consumes a reasonable amount of memory in doing so.
I was inspired when I was watching one of Abner's interview streams. He was complaining about Hangouts being really broken and I thought to myself "I wonder how hard it would be to make something like that". Possibly famous last words...at the very least I now have a new appreciation for the "Works on my machine" joke.
The goal is to be lightweight and simple, being less a social network and more a small application that you fire up specifically for a video call. Currently I'm using OpenGL for rendering because ImGui is glorious and it was the simplest thing to set up, but I think I'd like to move to having an actual GUI if I can find something that is small and cross-platform.
The source code is available on Github, along with 32-bit and 64-bit linux binaries.
You can also download the latest 64-bit Windows binaries.
