would you, at least, provide ANY information?
what can you say if someone writes something like "i can login to my account but shell takes 3 minutes to start, whats wrong?". what shell? with what do you login?
in your case, what is your software? do you experience latency problems with other software on your network?

Is the person on the receiving end have a bad internet connection, like a phone with "3g" for example?

And also, go here and post your connection speed that the results bring back.

If you can; have the person on the other end of the line post theirs too.

Since I have the same connection for both computers, conected to router wire(not wire-free) I have this results: Down 5.69 Up 0.49 ping 74 ms ISP Rogers Cable Distance 50 mi They work perfect when in Windows XP, I mean video and voice.
With Ubuntu 9.10 I can see myself in a green screen with vertical lines and the problem with the sound.
I should mention that the computer,(the one with the problem)has Skype for Ubuntu and the other Windows XP.
Thanks for any Help. The problem with the video is in a diferent Linux forum.

Actually the problem with the video and sound could be interrelated. Attempt to stop video communications and continue with voice and post the result.

Your internet connection clearly should handle it if its not under too much stress.

You are wright. Without video de comunication is almost perfect, exept for some backround sound and only 5 seconds late from the Ubuntu. So you think, should this tread be closed? or can you sugest someting more? like wait for the video to be fixed?

I would keep it open until the issue is resolved; since we can still help. The reason you posted here is because you want to fix the problem.

I have a few ideas at this point that could resolve the problem.
What kind of firewalls do the said systems have? This could interfere with the communications.

Do a simple <10 second video recording and then close the program and attempt to watch the video playback. Is it choppy? (Except the bit of choppiness a webcam always has)

Also, try this from the *buntu forums:
Unplug the cam (if you can)
Type these in a Terminal (you may need to be Root):
Code:
sudo modprobe -r ov511
sudo modprobe ov511 force-palette=13
tail /var/log/syslog
Reboot.
Or if you have a JPEG webcam you can try:
Code:
sudo modprobe -r ov51x-jpeg
sudo modprobe ov51x-jpeg force-palette=13
tail /var/log/syslog
Reboot.
Note: If you don't know, It is safe to execute the first one, and test, then try the second one and test.

Next, I'd like to ask you if you have the restricted codecs on your system?
Type in a Terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
Lastly, your internet's upload speed is less than 1 MB. It could be throttled by the presence of both systems on the network attempting to do the communication. Connect 1 PC to another network and see if your experience differs.You should be OK with your internet now, but it can't hurt to try.

Another question: Is the Ubuntu system trying to communicate directly to a Windows system? Or is the other system a GNU/Linux system?

Please post back all and any result you get with above suggestions/questions.

Hope this helps you
