Yahoo Chat client with webcam support

Over the last couple of weeks I have seen more than a couple of people looking for video chat clients. Until tonight I have not been able to find any. Lockergnome reported this linux yahoo chat client that now has webcam support.
Summary on website as follows:
A full-featured Yahoo client for LINUX with voice chat and webcam support. Mission: To focus on thorough Y! support on Linux only. Philosophy: Trying to do multi-protocol / cross-platform clients slows progress and results in half-baked support - One protocol, one OS...done well.

I have not tried this client myself as I do not use chat software, just trying to help out those that say it is all that hangs them up on other operating systems. (Lack of webcam support).

For voice and WebCam support for yahoo messenger you can try gyach :
1. Download , and save it to your home directory (important!).

2. Run these commands in the terminal, in sequential order:

tar -xjf gyach-install.tar.bz2
cd gyach
sudo ./install
