Would you please edit the title and text to specify that this is a question about MSN camera support in Empathy? Also: what do you mean by "I have problem to change files with it too"? – Riccardo Murri Oct 19 '10 at 14:28

I'm using without problem the webcam in Empathy under Gtalk protocol (Gmail chat), and the videocall works well. It doesn't work with Yahoo or MSN yet... Bye!

I would like to use the navite messenger. but pidgin it's a good choice. I hope in a few time we have support to webcam in msn messenger. – Raphael Fernandes Oct 19 '10 at 14:37

It should have webcam support. I never tried it, but there is a webcam-symbol next to some people with the option to do video/audio calls. At least in ICQ.
