When calling from Empathy to Empathy in Fedora 17 via the Google Talk service, I can get voice calls to work but I have found a problem with it. Sometimes the caller or the person being called (I'm not sure which one) has to log out and log back in. See bug 828025.

I am using Empathy for voice and Video chats for Google accounts without any issues. Are there any errors popping at that time ?

Can you elaborate your "not working" scenario. It will always help people in this forum to debug it sooner.

For voice you need a microphone and for video a webcam or the the options will be greyed-out.
