Is there a more standard way than a raw stream?  Assuming you are
looking at a one-way stream the work is pretty much done.  Anything
else is gonna probably need a server.  I have never used Ekiga for
anything other than a sip client.

Just installed ekiga on my netbook. It looks like it it wants to use
v4l for all local video sources.  This is gonna take some more work
:-(  Does ekiga just create the stream and provide the recipient with
the info required to find it?  or is it more "proprietary" than that?
