Wink cam & Pidgin


Hey gang!

So, I hooked up with someone on the Net, chat's cool, but a cam would be nice. I use Pidgin (of course) and have a cam. We use msn to do the chat. I understood that fonomo is a plugin to do just that: use a cam with Pidgin, but guess what? fonomo is apparently no longer around for download.
Any suggestions?
Either to get fonomo, or to use a cam on msn chats...
Thanks!

Thor
