When you join you're prompted to either use
your computer or use a phone
connection; if you choose computer, you then are given the chance to enable
or disable the camera and mic before the connection actually starts.
Unfortunately, if you choose computer and aren't using Chrome, you have
to install a browser plugin that people I trust say is not secure.
Secure or not, why do I have to download and extract an archive,
instead of using the browser's addon system? I don't know about price
or freedom (can't find the source code either) but as far as ease of
use is concerned, it lags way behind Hangouts.
: Some people have said that it also works with Chromium installed from
Ubuntu, but last time I tried it only pretends to work for Chromium
installed from Debian.
Yeah, no luck on opensuse either.
: "Pretends to work" meaning it looks
like it joined but you don't
actually get any audio or video.
