Hello,
I follow the discussion with great interst. I use Skype and VoIPBuster a lot, 
because the children and family of my wife live in the States, Australia and 
China. However, until now I am not able to get Ekiga working. The webcam is not 
working, and I found out that I have to pay for the calls using Ekiga. (home 
phoners/fixed).

Question: I am a real newbee, any reamrks concerning the items I wrote above. 
Please comment.

There are a lot of VoIP programs out there these days. I decided to follow 
Ekiga 
because I support the open software concept. Ekiga has thus far been offered 
to the world as a very generous gift. Of the programs I have tested, Ekiga is 
proving to offer the best sound quality, but many people are having problems 
getting it to work reliably. I have been trying Ekiga 2.0.11 that comes with 
recent 
distro of Gnome under Linux Slackware 12.0 and kernel 2.6.21. I have not yet 
complete success yet with this OS or FreeBSD 7.0. I also failed to get it to 
work 
under Windows, but this might only be because of some mis-understandings. I 
think you need to install GTK+ to get it to work in Windows, but following the 
chage-logs, I got idea Ekiga should not depend on GTK because there were 
some comments about removing the error message about requiring GTK. What 
OS are you using?

Others,

There is no error, I actually have gotten very good sound quality with a 56K 
modem. Ekiga is crashing for now and I am trying to solve this. However, 
I can say with great certainty the sound quality has been very good when Ekiga 
does not crash. Interesting point that Skype was originally described as 
working 
well with no more than a modem connection. I have never once experienced 
that. It seems Ekiga has some efficiency that ends up benefiting the end user 
in terms of efficiency and sound quality, which is why I want to see this go.
