    chat (msn) + webcam

    Hi guys!

    I had been trying to install some programs (amsn, emesene, pidgin..) but never I could use the webcam... =(

    I've Ubuntu 10.10 or 11.10 in other pc.

    I've read some posts about the Cesarius script, but all links are fallen.

    ¿How I can use the webcam? ¿Is possible= =(

    Thanks so much, and sorry for my english.

    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    Some years ago the ability to use a camera with amsn was almost feasible. Now, I do not know the progress of such an attempt.

    I think that if you would like to use webcamera, skype is going to be an option for you (at least if you want voice enabled too).

    Regards!

    I've recently successfully done video chat on Google+ Hangouts and also on the web at http://meetings.io/ and http://tinychat.com/

    The latter two are Flash based but don't need log-ons or proprietary apps like MSN or Skype.

    All the best

    At least Skype works. Without that, I dunno how camming with family/friends would be possible all these years (except keeping dual boot in place) I know Google Talk has webcam capability now, but still, MSN and Yahoo are an issue. When you're dealing with people who can't do anything with their Windoze installed off-the-shelf computer, asking them to install Skype is frequently too much for them to deal with.
