If we are wanting to add support for instance for Google video etc. jabber
is the protocol we use and its open source too.

Ah, okay. I didn't know that Talkyoo provides us service free of charge.
That's very nice of them. I'll make a note about that on the Talkyoo wiki

The biggest drawback with Talkyoo I see right now is the fact that there's
no way to connect to a conference call from your computer using Free
Software. We develop LibreOffice as a part of our stated goal of "spreading
the philosophical and cultural ideals of FLOSS,"
but the only software I can use to join a conference call is Skype.

I don't know what kind of connectivity software Talkyoo is using for their
infrastructure, but perhaps we can talk with them about making it possible
to connect using some other piece of (Free/Libre) software? Is there someone
on their team that I can talk to?

I'd definitely put in a strong plug for the no-extra-software-required of
WebRTC, but any FLOSS-friendly protocol would be appreciated.
