Is there an equivalent for Ubuntu(Linux) Skype? I do not want to use M$ software of any variety, however, I do need to be able to do video conferencing. I believe that iPad users have an app called Facetime... I would assume that a version of that for Linux would work as well, if it exists, I do not have a smart phone either...

Is there a video conferencing application available to us that can interface with Facetime? (I am currently running Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS)

From last one week my skype has stopped working. I can startup but I can't log on. Does this have something to do with the recent update to LibC?
