Ok, tried the no video, system crashed.
Installed Ekiga, could not get it to work, video would quit and not re-start. Including Cheese and VLC. Have to re-boot to get it back on.
Installed Linphone... seemed to work but had no-one to call for real test. Video would watch me for maybe an hour and then quit. Still working with Cheese. Would have to re-boot to get video to work in Linphone.
Today, Linphone won't launch at all. Tried a complete re-install of Linphone, still won't launch.
Just for fun, tried Skype. Working! (?) what? Video quits around an hour into conversation, but will re-start when call is re-made. Audio quit once ~an hour after, but re-established after calling back.
I'm puzzled, Skype is working, (not causing a crash) Linphone and Ekiga are not working, but were, sort of.
