    Default Video in Pidgin

    HI,

    I have installed Pidgin. I have created an account. I have added a buddy. - everything with gmail

    I can chat (text) with my buddy but no video/audio

    How can I use Pidgin to talk and video using gmail account settings?

    AFAIK it is impossible. For talk and video You need to use an internet browser and the google plugin.

    I'm very surprised because I have seen several Internet references on Pidgin Gtalk Video support, for example this one: Pidgin 2.6 Adds Google Talk Video and Voice Support

    Wow this has opened my eyes. Thanks. I see that option in my pidgin although I haven't tested it yet. Basically I don't recall doing anything special to enable it. My pidgin version is 2.7.10. Here's a screenshot in polish :
    SUSE Paste

    Though it's not visible on the screen shot that's a google talk contact.
