How Do I Videochat with someone in Kopete

In windows MSN, the window will appear automatically.

However, in kopete I cant find a single button that can activate my webcam when I am chatting with people.

In settings configuration video, my video appears just find. But I want the video to appear when I am talking to my friend.

Open kopete and go into the Settings menu. Click on "configure". A new window will open with a series of tabs running down the left-hand side of the window. click on "Video". You can now see if Kopete recognises your webcam and it is functioning correctly.


chat, kopete, webcam
