Well, to be honest with you, it's a bit tricky, but certainly not
impossible. I was pushing my way into videoconferencing a few weeks ago
with webRTC and mod_conference, but the results were far from flawless. For
our requirements, we went with classic streaming tech. For now, you can use
google hangouts or prepare for a knee-fight with mod_vp8.

> causes a loopback in both laptops. The default setting doesn't do video at
> all.
>  Funny thing is, if the call is originated from the SX-20, its control
