Can anyone recommend a good (and stable) video conferencing application that will work with both Ubuntu and Windows?

Asked by LEGOManiac on 2009-03-17

I've been trying out Ekiga, which has a Windows variant. My intention is to connect 2 Ubuntu PCs and a Windows PC (2 at a time - not all three at once). The Ekiga windows app has some serious GUI issues and, while I can get the two to say they connect, the Ubuntu laptop can see video from the Windows session but the Windows session can't see the Ubuntu session.

Can anyone recommend a reliable alternate?

You can have a shot at openwengo (In ubuntu package name is wengophone) or skype...

There is skype and there is an open source program called ekiga (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ekiga) that has a video function. As far as I can remember, there is a windows version of ekiga.
