ATI all-in-wonder as a webcam with gaim-vv/yahoo

I'm running Ubuntu 5.10. I have a logitech webcam that
works, but I'd really like to get my camcorder via my
ati all-in-wonder video input to work instead because
the video quality is so much better. The all-in-wonder
is currently working so I can watch TV on my computer.
What might I have to do to get working with
yahoo/msn/gaim-vv? I can't seem to find out what /dev
it is, which gaim-vv seems to want to know. Any other
chat clients to suggest?

Unless you know something I don't I don't gaim supports audio or video conferencing. I don't think any all in one instant messenger does yet.

You're correct. Gaim does not support webcam other than for conferencing. To use the webcam for the Instant Messenger is something they are working on now. This just came out last week in their press release with their merge with Google.
