Anne,

I tried sharing my Logitech Communicate STX webcam under kopete over MSN
messenger network without much luck.
Establishing connection was a real pain in the back side (large number
of retires to get it working) and from time to time my image would
freeze (both in the preview window and on the other end).

For now, I'm using the amsn package which seems to work just fine.

Once I'll have some free time I'll do some testing and report the
problems upstream.
