Video conference apts. or websites?

Forums: 

Hello,

Just our of curiosity, which is better for video conferences with more than 2 people? Skype for Linux doesn't have this feature, nor does Egika. Are there any apts that do and can be used with Ubuntu 11.10, wirhout any problems or tweaking? Basically, both the microphone and webcam work on my distribution, so I don't really think it is necessary to mess with them. Or would any of the many websites that provide video conferencing be better? These don't rely on any specific OS. If so, which one?

My 2 sons are in the UK and I'm in Greece. We all use Linux,and Skype.. but I can only talk with both of them, not see them. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Sincerely,
