Does Hello work in FFx36 on Linux Mint 17.1? It creates the connection but then ignores me, no a/v display from other people

Trying out the new Hello. Seems to work great on my Android with FFx Beta, and on my Windows 8.1, but when trying to either initiate or join a conversation from my Linux desktop, it doesn't seem to like me. If initiating a new conversation, it lets me copy/email the link to others, but never tells me when they joined or displays any audio or video, even though they are happily chatting with each other. When joining an existing conversation, it tells me there are already 2 people there, but still doesn't actually participate. Others don't see that I joined. Have no problems with using Skype on this linux machine, or playing HTML5 and other video (Hulu, YouTube, etc) in Firefox. Running Cinnamon desktop.

When you say others, are you trying to group video? Currently the release version only supports one on one video chatting.

If this is not the case, please make sure that the default devices are selected. "Firefox Hello doesn't work properly when no video camera is installed " is also the name of a bug that seems to be fixed in version 38. I would recommend trying Nightly on your linux machine since this will not be fixed for Firefox 36. bug?
