Does anyone here has uTox running on FreeBSD (especially audio input)? It doesn't select the correct audio input device and it seems impossible to change that.
[oss] device = /dev/dsp capture = /dev/dsp4

Edit: To add as to the reason why I recommend Linphone so highly for this purpose, it has been ported to everything from Linux to Windows to OS X to iOS. It is truly platform-independent and works with anything.
This is one of the most frequently asked question and one of the most annoying question for a UNIX guy like myself to answer. The reason is following. OP asks the question about video chat application even though she/he is really asking for a proprietary Skype client. Namely for better of worse lousy Skype protocol has won the video/audio chat wars just like lousy VHS won similar battle in 1980s. The protocol is proprietary, closed source, and only the proprietary vendor can release the FreeBSD client for it. Proprietary vendor, in this case NSA pardon Microsoft, does that not out of goodness if its heart but because of the financial benefit or in this case so that the big brother can listen to your conversation.Which application do you advise for video chat?
pjsua is just a library and CLI client. pjsip is (I think) a basic GUI SIP client written as a proof of concept around pjsua library. I forgot to mention in my first post that pjsua supports strong cryptography. We can try it once if you want instead of Skype. What sucks of course is that if you don't have fixed IP you need to use somebody's proxy server. There are very few free proxy servers left. I used in the past ekiga's and iptel proxy servers.
