empathy does not support yahoo audio/video calling. google talk works fine for me for video as well as audio.

go to Applications> Terminal and install the following

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

then quit empathy and again start it and make the call
fyi windows google talk client does not support video calling. if the other user is using the web client and you are still not able to call then something is wrong..
