Video Conferencing on OLTP (USD100 laptop)

It seems that somebody has managed to get video conferencing working on the OLPC XO Laptop (the USD100 laptop).

OLPC video Conferencing

This was made possible by Robert McQueen, using telepathy-gabble’s Jingle implementation, telepathy-stream-engine, and Farsight GStreamer RTP library.

The early video conferencing experiment by Robert seems promising when he was able to get bidirectional voice/video call going pretty quickly on OLPC XO laptop.

This is interesting because video conferencing on the laptop may open a wide range of possibilities such as classroom conferencing, video chat and distant learning using the $100 laptop.

Initially the concept of video conferencing was new to me but due to the change in technologies I felt that work and the performance of business can be effectively be increased positively due to the investment I made in more than one telepresence room. However, many telepresence solutions are now standards based, so they are compatible with other desktop.

One day video conferencing will be like an ordinary house-hold item in the next 5-10 years.I will mention your post in my blog.

  4. mm interesting. Well it says it “lets you video chat“, but it still doesn’t specify whether you can actually HOST it.
