Security? Isn't there something about the google video app allowing access to your computer files, etc? I've read that google's video/audio is higher quality than Skype, but am concerned about allowing unrestricted access to my computer's innards.

I have not heard anything like this for Google
As for video chat, it is best to use Skype :)

You could always run it in a sandbox via Sandboxie or a VM.

No way! Do you mean to tell me that you don't encrypt your vital innards?
