[Kopete] How to initiate Jabber video/audio chat?


might be a stupid question, but how do I initiate a Jabber-based video or audio chat?

What I have done so far:
- I have booted my MacBook (1st generation) with Ubuntu 7.10 and installed Kopete via synaptic
- setup Kopete with a Jabber Account
- noticed in Kopete's preferences that my builtin iSight webcam seems to work out-of-the-box
- meanwhile started iChat (4.0) on my iMac (which is setup with another Jabber account)
- both Jabber-Clients "see each other" (i.e. both contacts are "online")
- but: I see no possibility in Kopete to initiate a video (or even an audio) chat and my iChat displays the Kopete contact as not being able to do a audio or a video chat. So the only option is to do a text chat
- I don't know if it helps, but if I setup iChat on both Macs, it works of course.

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.
