Google voice and video v1.5.1

Today, we released the 1.5.1 update for the Google voice and video chat software. All current installations will automatically update within the next day or two. If you do not want to wait, you can visit 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:
  • Fix issue where we would write a 'debug.log' file to the application directory, in some cases the desktop
  • Fix issue where the plugin could crash if cameras sent resolutions other than requested
  • Fix issue where we would sometimes show the camera capability icon even if you had no camera
  • Various performance improvements
If you're on 1.5.1 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. You can also tweet @GoogleChat or @juberti, or email me using the "Email Justin" link above.
