    Any idea how to proceed ? Thought google talk is now banned by Etisalat in Dubai , as they did it already with YM and Skype .

They will ban it soon in UAE but as of now it is not banned. Just re-install the voice and video chat on to your computer and then verify your chat and video settings right by checking your camera and microphone. Also update your webcam drivers

Hello there,
No, Google Talk is not banned. Have you tried re-installing your webcam driver? As part of the troubleshooting process, could you try using your webcam in Yahoo! Messenger or Skype and test if it works or not there.
Let me know about the results so that I can assist you further.
Thank you.

Hi there,

IDD/ISD Code for UAE is 00971 / +971
STD Code for Dubai is 04 (Call from Inside UAE)

So if you are calling from outside the country, the code for Dubai will be 009714 / +9714

Best of Luck!

Have a great day!

I have downloaded Google talk and Google talk plug in -- still I am not able to chat on video -- what is the solution

Welcome to FixYa
Google talk Video Chat is Possible through Web browser like Chrome,Explorer .Not Possible in Messenger Software as yet.You have to Download Video Codec to Start Video chat in Google talk and Sign in to G mail account.
Here's what you'll need to get started:
  • Download the Gmail voice and video chat plug-in, quit all open browser windows, and install the plug-in.
  • Sign in to Gmail.
  • In the Chat section of your Gmail, select the contact you want to call. If they have a camera icon next to their name, you can make a voice or video call to them; just click Video & more.
If your friend doesn't have a camera next to their name in your chat list, you can invite them to download the Gmail voice and video chat plug-in from the Video & more menu in a chat window. Even if your friend doesn't have a video camera, you can still have a voice chat or a 1-way video chat.
