I use aMSN for webcam. I like how it records webcam conversations. The
moment Gaim supports webcam, the moment I move back to Gaim.
I have yet to reinstall the camera drivers, but I wouldnt mind helping
you test. I hope to install the camera drivers very shortly.
Other than IM's, I use the webcam as a motion detecting security camera.
It takes 2 images per second whenever it sees something move (50 pixels
