    According to Slashdot, the codec used by MSN Messenger for webcam conversations have been reverse engineered by Ole André Vadla Ravnås, of the FarSight project, and released as an open source library.

    Hopefully the GAIM folks will pick this up, so it'll eventually end up in Adium through libgaim (or maybe they'll just do it themselves).

    And in case you're wondering about the legality of this, here's a quote from the library homepage:

    I hope the GAIM guys and gals get file transferring up to snuff soon, as well.
