Is there an equivalent for Ubuntu(Linux) Skype

0 votes

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)

Maybe Firefox Hello would make the trick?

Possibly Google Hangouts (not with Facetime though as far as I know).

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and facing problem with ubuntu? On my machine Skype starts, asks to log in and then presents its list of connections. However after a couple of moments the list of connections gets
"inactive" (greys out) and finally disappears.

In the crash window that then pops up I see that something with seems to be amiss.

Any idea what I can do to fix the problem and where do I find the info that is in the "crash report window" so I
could add it to this email if needed?
