Well dimdim allows for one video feed with the free service, and I think
two video feeds for the "pro" version at $25/month. You get voice either
through the dial in conf number or VoIP.

But this is why it would be better to know your actual requirements ;-)

Other options may or may not work for you -- Skype, Ekiga, and I think
even Empathy and Pidgin.
