I don't have Voice Call in that menu (in fact I searched exactly there also
before) :(
And before you ask, watching the About it shows I have Pidgin 2.4.2vv-devel
on both machines. So either I had compile with some particular parameter
(which I didn't) or there is some problem somewhere else.
Other clients dynamically load such Voice Call when they find audio cards on
both users. I am using two virtual machines, but both of them "virtually"
show the audio card.

Any idea?

At this point in time, it will only work over XMPP/GTalk, but only if
both clients are the voice and video branch. When the Farsight people
finish libnice, we'll be able to initiate sessions with other clients.

You open a conversation and then go to Conversation->Voice Call... in
the menu. Soon there will be a "Media" menu in place of it with more
