There is no such thing such as OTR for voice, video or files.

So it won't have such great features as OTR. No deniability, not sure
about Perfect forward secrecy, and I don't know if such features are
possible for such kind of data anyway.. Still, real encryption (=not
Skype) is better than no encryption.

As alternative, there is also ZRTP for voip encryption.
