When empathy will have camera support? and I have problem to change files with it too. after 11.04 the next topic of canonical have to be to improve the empathy. the program is waek yet.
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!
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.
