Install pidgin, then:

These are required to use pidgin voice+video:

 * farsight2
 * gstreamer
 * gstreamer-plugins-bad-free
 * gstreamer-plugins-base
 * gstreamer-plugins-good
 * gstreamer-python
 * libnice

This one is required to use XMPP video chat with clients using GMail's
integrated client (so it's recomended):
 * gstreamer-ffmpeg

That's for Fedora, I don't know about Ubuntu....
