Is a video call from a netcafe secure?

If I want to do the video chat from netcafe, is it secure?

I think in this way maybe the netcafe administrator can capture my audio and video recording through desktop sharing programs like “QUICK SCREEN RECORDER” or any other software.

Isn’t it a threat for me? What is your opinion? Your earlier response would be appreciated.

Thanks and best regards.

    Anytime your actually talking aloud in a public area you should assume the people around you are listening (in which no encryption scheme can circumvent). 

    However, depending on the VoIP program you're using, sometimes you have the flexibility to enable encryption (teamspeak for example) if the server supports it, this would be your best bet. 

    Just remember, your in a netcafe, what secrets would you share in public?
