you can try kopete. it supports video chat but im not sure if it works with yahoo video chat

to install run in a terminal

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install kopete

I like 2 know whether i can do video chat with amsn & also it works with yahoo.....

Nikolas Poniros (nponiros) said : #6

amsn supports video chat but im pretty sure it doesnt support yahoo at all (not even chatting)

i had a look in the amsn homepage and there is no mention of it working with yahoo and there actually is a poll with feature request and yahoo interoperability is in the features request..

passionguy, just install a couple of programs and try them out.. if they dont work u can always uninstall

passionguy (fayazahmedj) said : #7

I felt i have asked a stupid question by asking it supports yahoo. I asked a messenger to do a video chat in yahoo thats y in curiosity i asked whether it works with yahoo. Do u have any idea abt a messenger available for video chat with yahoo??

Thanx 4 ur help.....
