I've posted some comment about SC to a German weblog covering VoIP and Jingle (to spread the word a bit )
They've answered with a little test report of a video call between Empathy and SC (hey, they managed to connect - as far as I know it is still an open issue - I could never answer, not even an audio call) Anyway.
What's interesting is the mirror wiew of the guy's own camera. (see photo)
I had it for one day and it disappeared with the next version. Is it a feature which is generally available but still not implemented in the GUI or did I simply not find the option? Would it be possible to set it in the config file?
