View Full Version : [ubuntu] Kopete and webcam?

July 22nd, 2008, 01:28 PM
Hi guys, I've been trying to find a software to use as a MSN messenger capable of sending and receiving webcam streams. Kopete seems to do the trick better than aMSN cause aMSN is very unstable as to typing. When I type fast in aMSN, letter come in the wrong orders (depending if the have a special character ' ` ^)... its a mass.

Anyway, here's the problem: Kopete recognizes my camera fine. Once in the configuration menu, I can see my camera working fine in that little window and everything seems to be ok. BUT, when I'm talking to a contact and I try to send or receive cam, nothing happens. I mean, really, nothing happens. I press the button to send my webcam and everything stay still, as if I had never pressed anything, not an error message, not a response whatsoever, the program just goes on working with total disregard for my attempt to send webcam...

Any ideas?
