I just installed ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop. Everything works well, but I have problem with sound. Output is OK as I can hear any sound from the computer; but there is no input sound from the mic. I am unable to record any voice or talk in voice chat.
I am brand new to Linux (Ubuntu 10.10 is what I use), and always used Yahoo Messenger back when I had Windows. Why are there no programs that allow for Voice calls to individual users? (not chat rooms, as I greatly despise them, but calls from one user to another) I was told Gyachi has that, but everything I tried does not work. Pidgin doesn't allow for voice chatting either, and the only version of Yahoo messenger that is available for Unix is extremely old and outdated.
I'm using finch as my main chat client but I have some issues, While on Lubuntu 10.10 I get the message "segmentation fault" when I try to engage /call, I also tried starting voice chat In pidgin and pidgin also crashes. this does not occur under Ubuntu 10.10.I have the voice/video plugin installed for pidgin and from what I have been able to derive from the documentation both finch and pidgin uses the same lib.and pls no referring to use other programs, I want to fix this specific Issue with finch.
I have Ubuntu 9.10 trying to get yahoo voice chat to work. Thing I have tried is Gyache now everything works but I cant talk. I can hear but not talk. When I hit the talk button the program goes grey. I have wine installed with Yahelite but when I open up YahVox I get the box open and no one is in there. Ycabby does not work for so I download the three cabs and extracted the files and copped the files to the system32 folder. I tried to the mighty google but I get a whole lot of nothingness.
I'm using 9.10. Most of my contacts on line use MSN for voice calls. Is there any messenger that supports voice for Ubuntu? aMsn and Empathy does not work. aMsn says that it's due to a protocol change in Live Messenger. Lately I've found out that voice through msn live messenger is real good in clarity and it hardly breaks up. Any way to connect with Live messenger for voice chat.
I have installed empathy, pidgin, telepathy and gstreamer plugins. How can I enable voice chat?I have already Skype runing, but I would like to set up at least one Linux client, and use google talk (gmail account) and even MSN, if it would be allowed.
I'm using 9.10 on acer aspire one (not the netbook remix).im using the default messanger client empathy.everything else works fine but when i try to video chat the video chat begins but if the other person even moves a litte or even nods his head then the video becomes so choppy that u cant see anything and then after 5 min comes back to normal for a second or two.i have all the latest updates and gstreamer0.10-ugly-multiverse which is required for video chat b/w empathy and gtalk.
I am looking for a good alternative to Skype. I would like to have video and voice calls with a family member who uses MS XP but would like to avoid Skype if possible. Does anyone know of a good client with good video and voice quality that will work on both platforms. I'd like it to use open standards so at least we can use different OS specific clients if one is not available for both platforms. Googling hasn't yielded much and some of the results refer to really old (~2006) articles or apps. I hope I'm not doomed to using Skype. I've resisted so long with using SIP clients for voice but am stumped now that I want to include video.
I know that we can use xvidcap or istanbul etc to record our screen casts.. but is there any software in linux which can record incoming gmail/skype voice calls??. maybe incoming gmail/skype video calls with sound also?. I dont need to record my input sound, but the incoming sound?
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)
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.
has anybody tried out imo.im? This is a web based instant messaging service, it lets users chat on AIM, Google Talk, MSN, MySpace, Skype, and Yahoo. My problem is, that I can not chat video and audio with it under slackware. I have video camera, it works for example in Skype (with the propriatare software of Skype), but with imo.im not.
Sugegstions for a good empathy protocal I have empathy installed on one of my Linux and a friend with the same setup. We would like to video/audio chat though empathy together. Although there are a few protocols to choose from. Are there any recommendation on one that is stable and reliable???
At the moment the Android version of Skype doesn't support video chat at the moment, just audio.There are lots of apps in Android for video chat (Oovoo, Tango), but I can't find one that will allow me to video chat from the phone to an Ubuntu laptop.
I'm after a replacement program for when I make the jump from Windows on my main machine. I'm looking for a MSN/WLM client which supports the protocol used for Video Chat in the 2011 version. I have tried aMSN a couple of months back but it doesn't seem to work with the new protocol, has this issue been fixed? Or is there an alternate program to use?
i have a fresh install of fedora 15 and i just configured kopete for gmail and facebook using jabber. Now, i dont see any place where i can start an audio call. i am logged into gmail and facebook already. chat is working . am i missing something?
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
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.
