    Webcam chat - Linux to Windows


    I'm looking for a piece of software that allows for webcam chats and can be installed on both Windows and Linux.

    I've tried Skype but the Linux version doesn't seem to support webcams. I've also tried using MSN (Kopete under Linux) but that won't work.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Linux is not only an operating system, it's a philosophy.

    You can also check out Ekiga, which is a SIP VOIP and video chat client.

    Not to be picky but personally I don't like aMSN - Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

    After a bit of searching I've come across this. I'll give it a go tonight and report back

    You should also check the latest kopete version, I can't remember which one exactly, it is included in SuSE 10.3. I was quite amazed to find that my laptop's webcam (hp dv6397ea) was working flawlessly.
