Why is video conferencing so hard?

Dear LazyWeb,

Why is Linux to Windows video conferencing so hard? I'm trying to communicate with ndusart and we can't seem to make a go of it. For me under Debian, ekiga seems like the best bet, but the windows port sounds a bit scary and hard to install, considering I'm not there to do it for her. We also tried WengoPhone, which seems very promising, but was crashing a lot for me and although we appeared to be placing calls to each other, no sound or video was heard or seen by either of us.

So, has anyone done this and had success?

Update: I also tried Skype, but the Linux version doesn't appear to do video.
