I and my father have a similar problem with video with the Ekiga 2.0.12
in Fedora 9.  We both have the same model UVC webcam.  For each of us,
the 500 ekiga net call usually works normally with both audio and video.
 But with rare exceptions, video does not work in either direction if
either of us calls the other, though audio is fine.  My suspicion has
been that it's a kernel bug since I've seen some flaky behavior
associated with various applications accessing the webcam.  The uvcvideo
driver was only recently included in the kernel.  Which driver does your
webcam use and is it considered stable?
