For years, I think, I've been trying to get Pidgin to work with Jingle (Google Voice & Video) without any success. Has anyone ever dones this? In fact, it seems that no OSS anywhere is capable of handling Jingle correctly.

Some claim they do (like Pidgin and Telepathy-based s/w) but there are always problems. Therefore a second question: Is there any Video-Chat protocol which is well supported by OSS on Linux and provided for free by some service on the net?

I have tried to use pidgin + jingle two to three years ago. I could never get the video to work. The audio I got to work, but it was always too noisy.

The only free video stuff that works on linux (and interoperates with other OS's) are skype and google hangouts/video.

Sykpe is no option for me. I would like OSS.

I think you can use Jitsi (Jingle nodes technology) + some free jabber server.
