What does this has to do with using Hangout??? Come on, that is

I don't agree. Have you ever tried BBB or SIP video? Have you ever
asked questions on IRC while watching a debconf presentation,
live videos feed (open source powered)?

All of these work very well. It may (or may not) be harder to
setup, that's right (freedom has a price after all...).

Microsoft windows. Maybe you should propose yourself for such a
job if you think that's realistic.
