Google voice and video v1.0.21

This week, we released the 1.0.21 update for the Google voice and video chat software. All current installations will begin an automatic update within the next few days. If you do not want to wait, you can visit http://www.google.com/chat/video and re-run the installer.

You can use your Gmail account to find out what version is currently installed. Simply go to the Gmail Settings page and look under the "Chat" tab. You will see the plugin version under the "Learn more" link, in small type.

Here's what's new in version 1.0.21:
  • Fixed an incompatibility with webcams using the 24BG color space (including many HP webcams, as reported here)
  • Fixed an issue that could cause crashes on Mac OS X 10.6.2 (especially with the new iMacs, as reported here)
  • Fixed an issue that could cause crashes when receiving H.264 FU-A NAL units
  • Improved compatibility with the Opera browser
If you're on 1.0.21 and still having a problem, please take a look at the Google Chat Help Center, or report the issue on the Google Voice and Video Help Forum. As always, feel free to email me directly as well.

Hi, great work! I'm running it in Windows and it works fine!

What is the status on Linux video chat? I read the discussions here: http://groups.google.com/group/Gmail-Help-Chats-and-Contacts-en/browse_thread/thread/f10f308d3536aa4/47235f06d306012a?q=video+linux&lnk=nl&#

Thanks in advance!
