Voice and Video GSoC Project

I've two questions:

1 - is voice/video going to work only for XMPP accounts (at least for now)?

2 - I created XMPP accounts both with your branch Pidgin. I expected to find
something like "initiate call" right clicking or opening a window between
them. How did you implement the call initiation instead?

I've probably put this off long enough. My Google Summer of Code project is
to work on voice and video support in Pidgin. My three goals are to port
Pidgin to use Farsight 2, fix up the audio conference implementation in
XMPP, and implement video conference support in XMPP.

So far, I've already ported Pidgin to Farsight 2, at least until the API
changes in the next version. I've also fixed up the audio conference
implementation most of the way, short of a few bugs.

Please feel free to test it if you'd like, it's in the im.pidgin.soc.2008.vv
branch. There are a few crash bugs at the moment, but hopefully they'll be
fixed up shortly. Also, a Voice and Video milestone has been created in
Trac. Thanks, rlaager, for creating it.
