    Empathy GTalk video calls won't work on m1530

    I can't seem to make video calls to people over GTalk on Empathy. I can see and hear the person calling me, but they can see or hear me. On my end it's showing me on camera, but the other person in the call is seeing nothing. Any suggestions?

    I'm in the same boat. I'm on a Lenovo Thinkpad W500 with Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit. If any other information would be helpful let me know. I'm interested to find out if anyone's empathy install works with google talk video chat.

    My mic can't pick up audio either. It's really annoying, I'm sure the fix isn't too complicated, I just can't seem to find it anywhere.

    I have the mic working now, but the volume is extremely low.

    I have the exact same issue - system76 - p6 laptop. No video on the other side.
    Also, when I receive a call in gtalk, empathy seems to hang.
