Glitchy launch for new video chat platform from Napster creators

Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning changed the face of the music business with Napster, the original music downloading site, in the 1990s.

Now they are hoping to do much the same thing, only this time without breaking copyright rules, in video chat.

Their new service is called Airtime and it was launched at a star studded event in New York.

Unfortunately for them the launch was marred by technical problems as Mark Gregory reports.
