Hello,

What is a good IM program to use with my web cam. I have Pigeon but I cannot get the web cam to work with it.

Pidgin does not support video chat. What network do you use? aMSN has support for video chat, but it only works for the MSN network.

For the most part I find Skype works the best. It also has the advantage of being cross platform.

I'm on Comcast, if that is what you mean by network. I'll give Skype a try. Thank you.

No, by network, I mean the protocol used to chat. AIM, MSN, ICQ, Yahoo, Google Talk, Jabber, Skype...
