Video chat on N900

So it is possible

Does it really work? How did you do that? On my freshly updated N900, I don't get the video option in GTalk calls.

That's what appeared today when a friend of mine tried to call me from his Empathy.
Didn't work though...

I also saw this screen when somebody tried to call me from it's N810. But I never saw any video output and he also doesn't saw something from the n900's front side camera.

If this clearly could be reproduced this also should find it's way to bugs.maemo.org :-)

I have made a videocall over SIP with my N810.
XMeeting on the other end:

This stuff is work in progress. The rtcom and Telepathy people seem to work hard to make that stuff working. But seems to be non trivial. So this stuff got disabled for now. Not entirely it seems. No idea when and if video chat will be unlocked, but would be a shame to let the front cam rot.

Sweet! I wonder if the same thing happens when you get a call via Skype.
