Linux version of MSM Messenger? (Need video conferencing)


I know this isn't a Slackware specific question, but I thought y'all might have some ideas. My parents live in NY and I live in AL and we video/audio conference pretty regularly using MSN Messenger. Unfortunately, this forces me to use our WinXP machine in order to do the conference. Is there a Linux program that is compatable with MSN Messenger that does video/audio conferencing? Corollary: Is there a program OTHER THAN MSN Messenger that is cross platform that I could use for video/audio conferencing? Thanks for your help!

There's also AMSN, looks a lot like MSN.
http://amsn.sourceforge.net

Not sure about video and audio, but not sure if GAIM can do that either.

I'm using centericq (www.centericq.de), which has no audio or video, text only,
no smilies, no pictures. But it fits in an xterm, uses little resources, does every
protocol (ICQ, MSN, yahoo..) I can think of and more.

I downloaded and installed Gaim-vv on my windows machine. I was able to login to my msn messenger account however I couldn't setup the "linphone" plugin in order to allow for video conferencing. The linphone option is NOT list under plugins on my machine. On the gaim-vv website there is a linphone tarball. I'm not certain how to install it. Need help!

gaim-vv is currently crap.

It segfaults all the time, and you HAVE to install THEIR libraries and THEIR version of linphone to get it to work, standard rpms of those libj2k & libosip packages don't work. This is horse-s**t. A form of open source vendor lock-in. It's still poorly developed. We need to wait a while before they standardize the package (they might not, some of these developers are too arrogant to standardize their packages for dependencies).

Kopete has a netmeeting plugin, but I haven't tried it yet. Give it a try, it's part of KDE and if you installed KDE it most likely is allready installed.
