LoudHush does not do video.

There is some good news - the iaxclient library that powers LoudHush
and most of the other IAX softphones out there is being updated for
video by Mihai Balea to support video on Windows, Mac and Linux (see
the cvs mailarchive on iaxclient.sourceforge.net).

As far as I know there is only one iax client library that does video
(a patched version of the iaxclient from Tipic Inc) and that doesn't
support Macs.

I'm guessing that once the iaxclient library will feature video, some
of the softphones using the library will add video capabilities.
