Video conferencing with EffecTV

[Load the picture] Vic is a free video conferencing tools. It read images from video4linux driver, so you can get images from EffecTV by vloopback. See the shot, the conference can easily flame up!!
Because vic requires 352x288 image, you have to set it by "-geometry 352x288." Some video devices do not support such size, so auto stretching feature of EffecTV is very useful.
