    Jay Samit former ooVoo executive is no longer with ooVoo, but he announced ooVoo would be coming to BB in 2Q 2014, what happened?
    This article below had me enthused.
    ooVoo to Launch Free Video Chat and IM Solution for the BlackBerry 10 Platform
    New York, NY and Waterloo, ON – ooVoo, one of the largest independent social video chat provider with 66 million registered subscribers, and Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced that ooVoo will bring its next-generation HD video communications service to the BlackBerry® 10 platform.
    The BlackBerry 10 platform allows the ooVoo service to easily integrate with voice, video and the remarkably fast BlackBerry 10 browser, which will give BlackBerry 10 customers a multiplatform solution for video chat and instant messaging with friends, family and colleagues. With ooVoo, up to 12 contacts can connect at the same time, allowing customers to stay connected and share experiences.
    “ooVoo serves more than one billion minutes of video each month to subscribers. By bringing ooVoo HD video chat to the BlackBerry 10 platform BlackBerry 10 customers will be able to video chat and share videos anytime with the millions of ooVoo's daily active users on virtually any mobile or desktop platform,” said Jay Samit President of ooVoo.

    like most devs.
    It was easier and cheaper to develop for two rather than 3, that and he probably only said that on the hopes BB 10 took off like a warpdrive.

    Skype happened. ooVoo was probably backup in case Skype wouldn't come on the platform. Once BB got skype, they probably didn't bother with ooVoo anymore....
