[PLUG] H.323 Linux clients and Polycom.

Does anyone have any H.323 client experience?

I'm trying to get Ekiga (3.2.7-5+b1 on Debian) to work reliably with a
Polycom system. Its extremely finicky about registering to the
gatekeeper. For about 20 minutes yesterday, I had it successfully
placing a call with me only receiving far video, but I wasn't sending
my video.

Looking through Ekiga's mailing list, its seems H.323 support is
admittedly buggy, but I don't see much else out there.

My other option is passing the USB camera through to a Win7 VM and
using Polycom's windows client, but that usually results in a crash
when the camera wakes up.
