I agree with Sylvain. I also regularly "attend" conferences remotely and really appreciate live video (even when it's one way). I also know that when we ran the RICG's meet-up the video feed we provided was hugely appreciated by the community and quite a few people logged in to watch (despite us having some technical issues initially, and despite many people having to get up at 4am!). Again, even though the video feed was one-way, it still spawned a great deal of real time discussion in IRC.
