#3703 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Plugin for accessing Yahoo Chat rooms.

Reported by: merca Owned by:
Milestone: Component: plugins
Version: 2.2.2 Keywords:


I just thought I'd share this with you. I have working code which deals with accessing Yahoo Chat with Pidgin. This gtk-plugin pops a window which contains the captcha image, a entry widget and a submit button. The code is quite simple and well documented. I've had others on Pidgin 2.2.1 test this on Yahoo and all seems fine. I think this is better (faster, more convenient) than doing the verification through a web browser.

We generally don't include plugins in our source distribution or packages unless we wrote them. I see no reason to make an exception here.

I don't like the idea that this is a plugin that would have to be loaded in order to disable the use of the browser for captcha verification, and there is no way that this code would ever be included in the yahoo prpl since it uses GTK directly.
