An obvious initial option is Skype which offers decent audio and video communications between up to ten persons. The downsides are that it is proprietary and that it requires both installation and registration/log in.

EVO

EVO is the preferred communications software of the ATLAS collaboration. It offers audio, video and other (screen sharing) facilities, so it is quite versatile. The downside is that it requires registration/log in. It requires JAVA on the machine running it, but only a quick download is required to run it. There's no extensive installation required. It works sometimes.

Added:

>
EVO will not run while logged into the same account on multiple computers. The latest computer to attempt to log into the already logged-into account is the instance that will continue to successfully run. The older instance will cease to run.

Adding "Buddies"

In the lower left corner of the main EVO window, one can search for names. One can add people to one's "Buddies" list in this manner.

Adding a community (e.g., the ATLAS community)

In the top menu bar of the main EVO window, select "Search". Then, select "Search Communities". A list of EVO communities should then be loaded and displayed in a new window. The "ATLAS" community is located in the "High Energy Physics" EVO community group. Select the ATLAS community and add it to your "Subscribed Communities". Select "OK". On the EVO home page, you should now see the ATLAS community displayed as a tab next to the "Universe" community tab.

Google+

A Google+ hangout offers audio and video communication. It requires no major installation (perhaps a browser extension might be required depending on the browser accessing it). A downside is that registration is required (i.e., a Gmail account is required).
