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