Mini HowTo: Logitech Webcam + ekiga + amsn + gizmo + voipbuster

Some days ago i installed ekiga and now i start it all days :)
This is a lil howto use Ekiga to talk with people using other networks like Gizmo and VoIpBuster and of course the ekiga network .

First of course you need to isntall Ekiga :

# emerge ekiga

And install the driver for your cam, my cam is a logitech so first you need a kernel with v4l (video for linux) enable and:

# emerge media-video/usb-pwc-re

Now when you plug your webcam you will see how the cam is assigend to /dev/video0. In ekiga you need to select the V4L or V4L2 driver to use it. It will work w/o problems in amsn too.

So how to talk with other networs? is easy just add new accounts:

* Gizmo:
Acc. Name: Gizmo
Register: proxy01.sipphone.com:5060
User: 123456789 (your SIP number assigned to your gizmo user)
Pass: yourpass

Auth. User: 123456789 (your SIP number again)
Reign/Domain: proxy01.sipphone.com
Time: 3600

Now to call any Gizmo user just use:


* Voipbuster:
Acc. Name: Voipbuster
Register: sip1.voipbuster.com
User: YourVoipbusterUser
Pass: yourpass Auth. User: YourVoipBusterAgain
Reign/Domain: voipbuster.com
Time: 3600

Now to call any Phone just use:

    Okay but what about amsn ? since i installed ekiga my camera doesn’t work anymore with amsn.

    mmm strange…
    the webcam support in amsn is not so good, usually i need to remove ~/.amsn and restart amsn. Doing this you remove all amsn config files!!!! so it works for me. I only use amsn when i need use the webcam in msn.
    So ekiga dont modify any amsn file.

    Maybe you try to use the webcam in amsn meanwhile ekiga hav it open?

    Thanks! It’s working, a little uncomfortable to have to add @sip1.voipbuster.com to every call, but it’s ok.

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your
    blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Cheers, I appreciate it!
