  I don't know well Ekiga [yet], but I feel that Windows version you
use and Linux one I'm using relies on different operating system's
libraries to drive the webcams. I finally found that 3.2.5 version of
Ekiga was working with the Eeepc's webcam on Linux, because I think use
of newer Linux driver called 'v4l2' (stands for Video for Linux
version 2), but for Windows, I don't know.

  Perhaps Eugen has better vision of this problem ?
