View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need MSN with webcam for Ubuntu

March 2nd, 2011, 10:36 PM
I am looking for a chat program as close to MSN as possible that can use webcam as well.

I have found aMSN and Emesene and both are very close to MSN but I cant use my webcam or see other peoples webcam even though it has that function ...
When I send a request to see a webcam stream nothing happens even after pressing on accept.

AMSM will allow you to view other peeps webcams but I too am looking for a programme to allow peeps to see my webcam..that how I found your post.

I know they were working on the coding but not sure if there is anything out there yet for this.

I tried AMSN but it didnt work for me, also it would tell me I have a message that was send wile I was off line and ask if I want to see it and when I click yes nothing happens.

I managed to see somebodies webcam in AMSN one time but then never worked again.

EMESENE works the closest to MSN for me but webcam dont work

I cant believe nobody using ubuntu uses a webcam wile chatting
