I have just spent a few hours compiling kopete to work with my UVC V4L2
camera(took me two goes).

Local test worked fine, went to logon to MSN to enable me to talk
interstate and found I had to sign in.
Then I had to allow cookies, only just did that.
Then I had to agree to Microsoft's terms.
Well I decided to read them(big mistake) and found

"4. How You May Not Use the Service.

use any unauthorized third party software or service to access the
Microsoft instant messaging network (currently known as the .NET
Messenger service);"

Naturally kopete was not listed:)

I currently have ekiga working fine and I have got my brother interstate
to load it up on his windows box. So will try that next.

Unfortunately I still may need to use MSN for other people.

1) Has anybody used kopete to access MSN.

2) what do other people use to talk/video MSN type people?

3)kopete has a few other chat  type protocols but not sure if any of
them do video, and will talk to windoze boxes.
