MythPhone is based on SIP, which is a standard for VoIP. It appears to
use the G711 codec for audio, which is totally standard and should be
supported by pretty much every SIP compatible voip phone out there. I
*think* the video codec is H263, which is also pretty standard.
There's a Java project called Sip-Communicator. It's a software VoIP
phone. It does video and audio. I've used it for debugging on my
application, which uses voice only, but the mailing lists report good
success w/ video. You might want to download it, install it on a spare
machine, and see if you can get a good connection.
I'm pretty sure, but not being a windows guy I can't be certain, that
NetMeeting uses a different protocol which SIP is not compatible with.
You'll have to find other software. Sip-Communicator is a bear to
setup, but easy to use once configured, and might not be a terrible option.
