clearly not a success story. please pay more care when picking a forum to post in. and again you've told us nothing useful about your system. what webcam? what distro?

The first six or seven google results for "pidgin webcam" all tell the same story their website does: while it is not in the current release, they are working toward ensuring full webcam functionality in a future version of the software.
