As I said, Jingle does by default not route video or voice trough the
server. Telepathy is used in Empathy. Telepathy (and Farsight) implement
jingle as a library for clients to use. There is lots of material
including some good slides out on the Net if you want to know more about

If you logon to google a STUN Server is automatically set by the empathy
profile for GoogleTalk. Check the settings, you may be able to use the
google STUN Server even when you use your own jabber server (altough it
