General :: Video Chat Abroad Experiences Using Skype?

Apr 9, 2011

Anyone ever try and do any type of video chat from abroad specifically? I'm going to China to teach a class for $work for two weeks and wanted to use something like Skype video chat with my family while over there (I'm in the continental United States) and wanted to know if anyone else out there had tried this or another service? My laptop runs Linux, as well as the computer at my home, so any chat service would need to be Linux friendly

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Use Skype Video Since Upgrade To 2.2

Apr 8, 2011

I'm running 32-bit Ubuntu 10.10 on a Macbook 3,1 and using my computer's built in iSight. Up until recently, before making the switch to Skype Beta 2.2, I was having no problems using Skype's video chat feature. However, now I am only able to get video working if I open a terminal window and type in:

"LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype"

Does anyone know of a way to get Skype functioning normally again? The launchers from my menu/panel no longer load the Skype that can use video, and when I tried to change the launch command to what what I use in terminal, it keeps telling me that "there was an error creating the child process for this terminal."

Ubuntu :: Get Skype Setup For Voice Chat?

Apr 5, 2010

I am trying to get Skype set up for voice chat. I tested my laptop's built-in mic by messaging echo123...

The test where I called the bot worked fine. However, when I had the bot call me, the playback was silent. What could be the cause of this? I have searched extensively and cannot find a solution.

I have both pigeon and empathy working on my laptop, and can chat in both, but i have been wanting to activate my video for both, but apparently it doesn't recognize my webcam.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype No Sound No Chat No Call 11.04?

May 9, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 x32 Today I started Skype and I couldn't hear the Skype logging sound. Nevertheles I could see the contacts online. When I tried to write messages in the chat they couldn't receive them. When I tried to call nothing worked. After that it seemed that Skype was completely blocked. I clicked with the right button on the green icon of Skype and chose "quit" but it wouldn't close. 1 I logged off from Ubuntu and on again. I opened Skype. I made right click in the green icon and chose "Options"

2 I went to the "Sound Devices" menu in the left part of the window

3 I removed the tick for "Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels"

4 I closed Skype and opened it again and the sound problem was gone.

Debian :: Skype Logs (Chat History) From Windows

Mar 21, 2015

I want to install Debian but I'd like to keep my Skype chat history.

I don't know if it's possible to just copy from %appdata% the skype folder and put it into the Debian's one.

How could I do? I read one post but it's quite old, so maybe there's something new now.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Video Chat On Any Software

Jan 4, 2010

I have a very annoying problem: I can't seem to be able to video chat. Not on aMSN, not an Skype... I'm sure that my camera works because I can take pictures using Cheese. However, when I establish a connection on aMSN or Skype, the other person only sees a white screen instead of my face. (I've already installed farsight2)

My webcam is a Hercules Classic Silver.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Create Video Chat App

Jan 11, 2010

I have been tasked with the job of finding a way to create a video chat application on Linux to use with our health software. We are basically just wanting to add a video / audio component to the system. I have been using Ubuntu a long time and have decided to use it as our platform for the new software. We currently use Emblaze VCON with our software on Windows and I want to eliminate the need for Windows completely. We supply the hardware so if I can get good quality video chat integrated into our software then I am all set.

I have been playing with some apps like vlc, cheese and luvcview. I am quite impressed with the video quality I am getting so I know Linux can give our users a great chat experience. I even tried Skype 2.0 beta and that worked great too.

I see the software working just like Yahoo or MSN does. I provide a list of users and whether they are online and when you double click on their name they get a ring and prompt to accept the incoming call from "Joe". If there is an engine already in place that we are free to use and bundle with our paid product then that would be great. I am really ignorant on GPL licensing so I want to be careful on what we do. Also, I think this method is best for the connection... I like the idea of a server which receives input from all clients and tracks their online status but when you make a call to the other person it communicates p2p style to minimize hops and server load. We will be controlling the firewalls on the hardware but not what this hardware may be behind, ie. Router - so I guess I need something that can tunnel through / around such obstacles.

I would really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction on what I could use to do this and also not have to worry about licensing and Intellectual property violations. Btw, I don't see the need to modify the software if it can handle the p2p chat out of box and do it well. I will write the components to handle online / offline status if the "engine" doesn't handle this.

OpenSUSE :: Finding Application To Communicate In MSN Via Video And Audio Chat?

Aug 14, 2010

I have installed the latest version of aMSN (aMSN | Download aMSN software for free at SourceForge.net) which supports sending my webcam video. Unfortunately, it is unable to send my audio at the same time which is highly frustrating.

Does anyone know of a Linux equivalent of MSN which allows video and audio communication. I have tried Kopete, although the call feature button is inactive, despite having setup my webcam in this program.

I have also tried installing a program called qnext, though webcam and audio support between alternate different Instant Messengers (IM's) are not supported.
