Gmail video chat

It does not work on Linux (yet), but this video and voice chat right inside Google Mail will be definitely a killer!

I honestly don't see how more closed source browser plugins is a good thing.

Chris said...

yeah, not working on linux is not great

Marcel said...

Not yet? Will it ever work?

Oh dear... praise for closed source, locking-in software now...
is that the Nokia culture slowly perfusing in? ;-/

What's wrong with you, guys?

Chris said...

no , i like it, but wanted to test it out, and got "not available for linux yet" - so i skipped this product

I can't try it here on Linux, and no Windows box anywhere close so I'll ask you guys: How does it work? there is no javascript I know about that could pull that off. ActiveX? Java Applets? What is this?

@agony: flash. Although it seems to install something more but I don't know what exactly. Works okay.

Thanks for the post Ariya, I appreciated it even if nothing else did, especially if it is built on open standards as a lot of Google's stuff is.

This is great! And video chat does not get any easier than that.

Waiting desperately for the Linux versions. I sometimes feel, a company which has its most of the infrastructure running on FOSS, creates too less stuff for Linux
