Jitsi is an audio/video and chat communicator that supports protocols such as Google Talk, SIP, XMPP, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AIM, ICQ, and Bonjour and many other useful features like conference calls, desktop sharing and Jitsi is multi platform (Linux, Mac, Windows). Jitsi is Open Source / Free Software, and is available under the terms of the LGPL.
