In Kopete, just click on a contact (make sure it's a Yahoo contact) to open up the conversation window. Once you have the window up, you should see 2 webcam icons. The icon with a blue arrow pointing down is the "Request to view webcam" and the icon with the green arrow pointing up is the "Invite to view your webcam". Those are the icons to start your webcam and to request to view your partner's webcam. To deactivate your webcam, just close down that window.

Thank you and that did work. Can it be used also with msn messenger?
