If you have a webcam, you can call your contacts and have a video conversation with them. This feature only works with certain types of accounts, and it requires the other person to have an application that supports video calls.
Right-click on the contact that you want to call and select Video Call.
A new window will open. When the connection is established, you will see the total conversation time at the bottom of the window.
To end the conversation, click on the hang up button.
To turn a video conversation into an audio conversation, choose Video ▸ Video Off.
From the Contact List window, right-click on the meta-contact.
Select the contact you want to have the conversation, and from the menu select Video Call.
To recognize if a contact is a meta-contact, move your mouse on a contact in the Contact List window, and stop over it for a second: a small pop-up message will appear showing the number of the contacts that form the meta-contact.
