    Empathy doing audio/video for msn protocol

    Good morning,

    I've been looking online and found nowhere stating that empathy can do video/audio for msn protocol.

    I have 2 young daughters at home and all their friends use this protocol. If I want to reach to them with Linux (since I pretty much have only that at home), I would need this ability.

    So anybody knows why it's not possible to have video/audio with msn protocol on empathy?

    What is blocking us?

    thanks

    If you can't afford to loose it, if you don't know how to get it back: back it up.

    If you google, this comes up:

    However, a simpler way to use msn on linux is to install amsn (its in the repositories) which supports almost all of the msn features.

    yes I know I was searching again just moments ago and I saw the news. Just as I was wondering haha. This is pretty fresh. Cool

    Thanks also for the amsn tip.

    I will have a look at all that.

    I guess that the real solution for that is either virtualbox or a partition.

    With amsn I can send webcam, but no audio.
    Esos son mis 2 centavos.

    Meebo can do audio and video on any network, using Tokbox as an intermediary (if the other person isn't on Meebo, they get sent a link to Tokbox). It works well enough for me, as long as Flash supports your webcam on Linux.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Nobody else with a webcam on tonight so I can't give a screenshot.

    You're not going to like this: My webcam is an OEM-branded one that you're unlikely to find outside Australia. It's a **** Smith's (**** Smith's is an electronics store down here). It was actually marked with "Supports Linux kernel 2.6.26 and later" and, as I suspected, it's a UVC-based cam.

    Lsusb identifies it as a Microdia. That's literally all the human-readable information it gives. Here's the link on the **** Smith's website:

    Meebo is what I use too.
    It is webased. So you can acess it from the webrowser.
    It can connect to MSN and Yahoo etc at the same time.
