Its a plugin in both Firefox and Chrome, available at
http://www.google.com/talk/, and you dial it from Firefox/Chrome while
logged into your gmail account, using the Linux PC's mic and
camera. (You will have to piddle with your Google chat settings to
receive callson your Linux PC.)

There is no equivalent plugin for Android, (but the GrooVe IP works
pretty well, just no video-probably piddle with the echo
cancellation.)
