I have installed the latest version of aMSN (aMSN | Download aMSN software for free at SourceForge.net) which supports sending my webcam video. Unfortunately, it is unable to send my audio at the same time which is highly frustrating.
Does anyone know of a Linux equivalent of MSN which allows video and audio communication.
I have tried Kopete, although the call feature button is inactive, despite having setup my webcam in this program.
I have also tried installing a program called qnext, though webcam and audio support between alternate different Instant Messengers (IM’s) are not supported.
I feel frustrated in relation to this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your help.

Our daughter uses aMSN (on ubuntu 10.4) with a webcam, but she does not
transfer sound so I do not know at the moment if it is a problem with your
special install or a problem in general, I can check it when she is back in
a few hours.
You need a program which can communicate with msn or is something else also
What about skype for video/audio chat?

Forget my comment about skype, I see you have another thread with a problem
yes I have resolved that problem though,
It appears as though aMSN are working on a project to support one of MSN’s upgraded protocols, to enable voice communication. Unfortunately, in the meantime I don’t think there is a replacement. I don’t even think you can run the Native Windows MSN with Wine.
This is quite unfortunate!
If voice support was available with qnext that would be the ultimate communication software for linux (in my opinion).
