I am using Ubuntu UNR 9.10 on my netbook and Kubuntu 9.10 on my desktop. I tried to use jabber to send video from my netbooks integrated webcam to my desktop.
Using kopete, kubuntus standard client, I don't even get the option of doing that. I assume empathy (which I used on the netbook at the time) recognizes that kopete does not support video. So I installed empathy on the desktop as well and the button for video shows up. But the video window on the desktop stays black, never plays a single frame.
So I installed piding on both machines. Using video with pidgin actually freezes piding up on my desktop.
Now, I of course used two differend jabber accounts, to make sure that's clear. And my desktop does NOT have a camera, I need it one way only anyway
Can anyone make sense into what's happening?

I've only managed to get video through Skype. I really hope Pidgin will get audio AND video soon. Go Pidgin team
Re: Video Chat
Thanks for the input, but I will continue to refuse to use Skype. But that's neither here nor there, really
My video works, at least on the netbook. But my desktop does weird stuff when I try it, and I wonder if it is because it does NOT have a webcam. But that would not make sense, would it? I would think I should still be able to view video.
