    webcam icon on msn

    Hi,
    I was just wondering about the webcam icon next to the picture of who you're chatting to.
    If my friend is in a cam-chat with someone else, does that icon go away next to his picture. Or does it only go away when it is not hooked up.

    Greetings,

    Nah, it's not that smart. The icon will only go away if they don't have a webcam connected
    or have elected to hide it (it's in the options).

    Hi,

    No problem

    Just to add, there are issues when people go into the options and hide the webcam icon (if
    it's being considered):
