I have the video working great for regular calling but it seems like the video just disapears when I try to start a group call.

Skype is working on Group Video. Have a look at the 5.0 Beta.

Skype golden version 5.x is released, you can download from skype official site.

Skype disables it for some odd reason. Linux allows several skype instances. I think you can open two skypes and call one-to-one with each skype instance. However, I'm not sure if the webcam driver let's two applications read the camera at the same time.

Watch out for ooVoo! Just a few hours after installing it, I had several viruses and had to reinstall Windows. The exact same thing happened to about three other people that I know.
