Alternative to skype: SIP with video and sound (usb microphone) ?


Hello,
For linux Debian etch, is there something that can replace skype?
It is very pitty that skype is so buggy and that nothing works (sound) with it

We have hence to find linux opensource alternatives that may work as good -
Happy Tux

Ekiga

"Ekiga (formely known as GnomeMeeting) is an open source VoIP and video conferencing application for GNOME. Ekiga uses both the H.323 and SIP protocols. It supports many audio and video codecs, and is interoperable with other SIP compliant software and also with Microsoft NetMeeting."

Bye,

thanks, but ... Well you may try but ekiga and gnomemeeting, is not compatible with windows programs for the video
We made lot of trials through the net with a friend (he has windows xp)and result : no way.
The best results he got were wiht gizmo and openwengo, but both video + sound were of crashing or not working (either no sound/video).

I've found this article, but I've never used it.

http://wiki.ekiga.org/index.php/Conn...1_to_ekiga.net

The windows end has to be using Windows Messenger 5.1. Then, after following the instructions on the page, the other end uses Ekiga, and they connect with sip. Hope this helps.
