Alternatives to Skype for video teleconferencing -- bummed out by crappy audio quality.

I'm involved with a nonprofit that currently uses a paid Skype subscription for video teleconferencing. On our last call, the audio quality was extremely choppy, to the point that we could barely track what people were saying, even when we turned off the video to conserve bandwidth.
Can you recommend alternatives with better audio quality?
We know about Oovoo -- can you provide first-hand experience of using it for a situation like this?
* Video and audio for up to 12 people
* Participants on multiple platforms (Mac/Windows/mobile)
* Ability to phone in with no computer
* Free/low cost (less than $20/month)
* Easy setup
Nice to have:
* More participants
* Screen sharing
* Usable for participants on older computers or crappy connections
