Since your post to this list I've started using ostel with Jitsi, 
and it's working very well too. The video never seems to be 
reliable, though (this is Windows <-> Linux). Is that likely to be a 
Jitsi thing, or a ostel thing? Or just a speed of some of the
computers thing (some are slowish, but video works fine on them all 
with Skype).

I'd assumed it was inevitable, but if an Android client can do good 
video, then presumably laptops ought to manage it too.

Thanks,

Nick
