I tried to attend, but without success.

- At first, I was asked for a meeting code... After some investigations,
it appears that one must be connected with a Google account.

- Some minutes later, after recovering an old Google account that I
don't use anymore, I was asked to enable my microphone and my camera,

- At this point, the video of my cam with the following message (in
french) were displayed:

     Vous pourrez rejoindre l´appel dans un instant

It could be translated as:
     You'll be able to join the conf RSN

but this message stayed forever, and I never joined.

Is there some special configuration needed?

Note: my desktop runs KDE + firefox + webcamd.
