OLPC Videoconferencing —
We just had our first trans-atlantic (and trans-Cambridge) videoconference on the OLPC!
We were chatting with the fine people at Collabora (Dafydd Harries is in the bottom photo), who have been working on getting Telepathy and Farsight running on the OLPC OS. Audio and video were both extremely smooth. We were exchanging 15fps, over wireless at both ends.
My hope is that starting a video call with another user on the mesh network could eventually be as easy as clicking on a buddy’s icon in the mesh view.
