Hi Charlie,

Something to look at is Openmeetings:
http://code.google.com/p/openmeetings/http://code.google.com/p/openmeetings/

I haven't installed it, but have used their demo site. It seems fairly
nice. I wanted to allow for screen sharing, and it does that well. Voice
volume was a bit of a problem on Linux, but not on Windows, and this may
be fixed at this point. I haven't tried video on it at this point.
