I have everything working with this except the microphone. The "default" mic is selected but I can't see the bars move when I speak. Anyone else have this working? What does your set up look like?

I get this plugin error when I try to test the settings or connect on a video call:

the following plug-in has crashed in /opt/google/talkplugin/

The camera works fine in pidgin under google chat.
