I have been using Pidgin in MSN Live Chat (or whatever its name is
this week.) Then I begin interested in using videochat with that instant
messaging -protocol. I found these documents about that topic:



"A Farsight2 plugin for MSN Webcam has been released.
http://imfreedom.org/wiki/index.php/MSN:AV has more information about
the protocol."

Then I installed latest versions of almost all Debian-packages having
character string "farsight" and all their dependencies. I also updated
Debian-packages related to Pidgin and all theri dependencies. But I
still think my Pidgin can not do videochat, when chatting in MSN Live

My questions are these:

Did you create Debian-package for Farsight2 plugin for MSN Webcam and
other packages that are for using webcam in MSN Live Chat with Pidgin,
already? If not, when you will create them?

P.S: If this really is some mailinglist, please remember that I
