Multiprotocol Pidgin, a threat to Yahoo Messenger? - HD video tutorial

Many of you probably wanted a software that you can log in with all the ids it has… and Yahoo Messenger and GoogleTalk and MSN, well here is this program that we allow this to exist !!! It has existed for a long time but probably many do not even know or have not found out about its existence.

In today's tutorial I decided to speak Pidgin! What is Pidgin? A multi protocol Instant Messaging platform more Explained this is a FREE chat software with which we can logam on all our accounts! We can also use it to post Multi Messenger!

Pidgin allows us to login protocols (accounts) such as:

  1. AIM
  2. Hi
  3. Gadu-Gadu
  4. Google Talk
  5. Groupwise
  6. ICQ
  7. IRC
  8. MSN
  9. MySpaceIM
  10. QQ
  11. SILC
  12. SIMPLE
  13. Sametime
  14. XMPP
  15. Yahoo!
  16. Zephyr

What is the beauty of this software? Well, let's see: Imaginative what your desktop would look like with Yahoo Messenger open and GoogleTalk and MSN and ICQ… it would be a full desktop, processes running in the task manager, and unnecessarily consumed RAM. one program, and let's talk practically with everyone no matter what chat protocol they are part of in a single window, logging in on how many IDs we want and on how many accounts we want!
Everything I said above are the advantages of this software now talk a bit about the cons of this software:

We can not see web-CAM or someone from our list, that does not support webcam.

We can not do voice conference or voice call someone.

About this would be the two major disadvantages of this Pidgin, but who wants just chatting and just about to transfer files and even converse is ideal and I recommend it!
This software besides chat support different protocols is also highly configurable, supports plugins, with which we can improve or customize the functionality, appearance.

Pidgin comes by default (base) with a few plug-ins with the possibility that then we can go on the official website and download pidgin plugins have what we want in that category.

That being said let's watch it together this long tutorial. I made so long that it seemed a very interesting software and we wanted to cover all the functions and settings and what software can do. I hope to use it with pleasure and enjoy it!

Happy browsing and wait with comments or questions!

  13. Pufulete said

    Bravo Adrian, very well explained. Pidgin is very interesting and very well programmed. I knew this software from the time when it was called "Gaim".

    Hello.

  14. Adrian said

    @je: There but not free! Not everyone uses the webcam!

  15. Otz3larul said

    Is there Alonia.E Romanian

  16. Dc you banned me?

  17. I use this pidgin in Ubuntu 9.04. I have a little problem. Binds problem with the file transfer protocol of yahoo.
    When I receive files from someone, everything is fine. but when I send files to someone, at first glance it seems that the transfer is made… but the other person never receives anything. A strange thing is related to the fact that when I drag and drop the cat (and not only) in the conversation window, it immediately seems that the transfer begins to take place… without the other person giving the consent for the file, obviously the other does not will notice that I tried to transfer something. Has anyone ever encountered this problem…?
    Transfer appears to be made even when the other person is offline and I know for sure it's not invisible.

  18. @sorin: SI @Maddalinio: We have tutorials on linux! And we also have a site search engine top right is a box that is called Search and with which you can search for articles older or subviecte you are interested! If it says there'd have been gone and enter Linux and gave legal tutorials about Linux and Linux!

  19. I mean to me several plssss

  20. @Adrian: What do you have left for them like this, don't you see that they are here? Hell, that "Search" is too small for the world to see, and I'm 100% sure many don't know what that "Search" means. You better change it to "Finding Tutorials."

  21. danscarlat said

    I use Trillian is great
    handle small resources, all login IDs that you have, allow login on multiple protocols (accounts)
    is a trial software but I found a crack on the Net
    good luck

  22. @marius: For details about Pidgin in Linux go to ubuntu.ro ubuntu romania is the official site, there they have a forum in Romanian where the problem of pidgin was discussed, they have a mirc channel where you can enter and talk to those there in real time…

  23. So, first of all I want to thank you for all the work you do… you are the strongest..with your help I learned many things about my PC… .Secondly I would ask you to explain to me how I can put as a search engine in my torrent, isohunt or mininova… etc… so please very much… Tutorial about camtasia studio and about installing windows vista operating system would be welcome .;) )… .That's what I had to say… thank you again… with respect Matteo.

  27. aaaaa now I saw k you put in that line si .and bit torrent and google…: d sorry ..

  29. Adrian said

    @[email protected]: You go back and check the paint, give it the next one and it will ask for your CD with windows… put it in, give it ok, wait for it to copy the files it needs and you're done!

  30. ok..thank you very much….

  31. aolo adrian sorry I think I'm already starting to get pathetic with some bad taste questions but right now I dowloadat a movie from axxo… and when I gave it a play in BS-player…. I got a dialog box that he tells me I don't have the necessary codecs to open that video (I have a DIVX codec and DVIX converter in my pc)… please recommend me something too… thank you very much once again and I hope you don't mind because of my questions… and because I stress you so much….

  32. Adrian said

    @[email protected]: Brother use the Search at the top right of the site !!! we have tutorial about anything… write up the search on the right “Install and set codec pack” (without quotes) give enter and you will find the tutorial

  33. ok dude i know that… just that tutorial is older and mah i was thinking k along the way other newer codec packages appeared…. ”Installing and setting up codec pack” (without quotes) ”… pff… I wouldn't be realized… ..ok thanks for the tip;)…

  34. haosss said

    @[email protected]: you said too ”[email protected]

    aolo adrian sorry I think I've already started to get pathetic with… "so that man can be right…
    1. you don't know you are capable…
    2.or I met people here who said that they don't like apples and when-there: he also put quotation marks in copy….

  35. ok bozze maybe i was a little jichit by the way he answered every time… but still let's be serious… .ok I apologize dak i upset someone… ..I am always watching every tutorial and I know all the tutorials that are… but I said (what do you recommend) because, as I explained that tutorial with the package of klite codecs is older and I thought that newer and better ones appeared..and he tells me: brother, you don't see the search … But in the end uite .look I apologize again;) .. ok? .. now maybe no one will appear to comment on what I said;) ..

  36. Adrian said

    @[email protected]: A new package of codecs has come out since then and so far but the installation is the same… if you do a google search that in that tutorial you will see that another version of codec package came out… but also that in the tutorial it is installed… it is not logical? What would it mean to do a tutorial every time a product releases a version? For example Klite from then until now have released an update for that codec pack 13 times so far… we had to do 13 times tutorial? Well, do we end up doing that with every new software that comes out? The same Revo uninstaler from the tutorial and until today 10 versions came out but the same is installed… nothing has changed in the installation mode !!! Should we have done 10 Revo tutorials on every version that comes out?

    Good day, evening
    I have a problem and please help me if you can:
    I tried to download something from ISOHUNT, and it didn't work; that is, I had a red X and a download error; so far I have not suffered this; I tried with extratorrent (which I usually used)… but it happened the same way: red X and download error… ..
    I switched from bit lord to u torrent… .same thing
    It may be just a coincidence isoHunt, or what happens? What can I do?
    can you help me, please?
    thank you

  40. What theme are you using?

  41. Adrian said

    @olmonik: You probably have the windows firewall activated and it blocks your torrent client, go to the control panel and then to the firewall and deactivate it, turn it off, just as the windows one is useless and blocks only what you don't need !! Or probably the torrent you want to download is no longer valid… try to take it from elsewhere and forget to have many seeders!

  42. Lucian andone said

    how to read the CD again. when I enter to watch a movie or to institute a program it doesn't work anymore. I went somewhere - I don't know where - and I set something so neither the stick reads it nor the CD.
    thank you in advance

  43. @Lucian andone: you stopped the autoplay service, and please don't go another time if you don't know what that function does and what it is used for !!! Click on start then on run and in run write like this: services.msc and enter or ok in the window that appears look for the service "Pulg and Play" right click on it choose Properties and at startup type choose Automatic !!! And give a restart to the pc… to tell me if the above advice has solved you !!

  47. what happens to the site? it's the third tutorial I only see halfway through today… when it gets somewhere, it crashes, and even if I start viewing from the beginning, or reconnect netu` it still works…

    • Liviu: What happens to the site '? The third tutorial is only half you see today ... you get somewhere, locks, and even if you start viewing from the beginning, or reconnect Addicted `all so go ...  

      It's from your net of intra and you privestele morning and when the network and the Internet in general is more stink crowded or late at night, to me go all the way! I had RDS and we met a few days and your problem but I see that now fixed. The problem is that RDS although they still can not afford selling subscriptions Having a network structure that is based very crowded and yet they still sell ... without increase or stay out extra servers. In almost all the country's problems with RDS, Bucharest people leave them on the ends are wholesale termination, because people are dissatisfied with the response timpu very poor navigation and speed during peak hours. It's not the website as saying that, to me tutorial go to the end.

        I think you're right ... sometimes I just happen to get stuck ... and it is often difficult when netul go ... It's very annoying! While it's interesting tutorial stops! Should make those in RDS something about it!

        • Liviu:

          call and make a panorama !!! Their customer service is free, threatened with termination… If we stay like this and pray and wait for others to do something, no one will do it !!! everyone has to do something, you can start as I said by calling them, complaining that it is not working properly, threatening them with termination… contact numbers can be found on the net… type RDS in google enter and you will find their official sites and phone number, the RDS also had a speed test the other day, which I now see they took out ??? why ??? Doesn't the world mean that their speed (in the advertisement is 100Mbps) is dust ???

  48. it's not a bad idea… I'll call them soon… and at the speed test, it used to look good… the indicator went all the way… I don't know exactly how much it indicates, but I think 20 Mbps if I'm not mistaken…. now I can say that it's good if it reaches up to 8 Mbps

    EDIT: sorry… it was 50 Mbps maximum… and 8 Mbps shows me now… I did the test a few seconds ago

  49. I talked to them, and today they sent some guys… to change some cables… that it will work better… honestly it seems to me that it works worse… that is to download, it's slower speed… I'll see immediately if it no longer crashes on videotutorial.ro. I hope it'll be okay

  50. I try to look at this tutorial 2 days but every time interrupts 7 min, what happens?? thanks

    It's really interesting this Pidgin

  52. ZeroCool said

    I like most people who use pidgin as YM da buzz tie ity ity if there is a buzz given wrote that knew not that sound out ity

  53. solved with rds. The signal was not transmitted through the newly connected cables, and now it has started to transmit it… it works much better net… it has a speed of 33.2 mbits per sec. instead of 8 mb as before… and the browser buffer is better…

  54. you overreacted ft lot that is done programu 1 1 tutorial for a very poor time (could be done in 10 min) can not call you can not give weeb etc.etc has no special nmk beyond the fact that you can log on more many ids mention it anyway tutorial with tor-browser-is there and said everything there was to say, as you see obosisei to vb so many settings you have and whom are unnecessary

  55. I also have a request… can you do a tutorial with "digsby"?
    I personally find the best demic yahoo messenger or pidgin.

        protocol or to find plugin for IP? and what is that plugin? Ms.  

        there is no plugin… a cool plugin would be the idle maker that allows you to appear idle even if you are working on pc ,,, to select it go to tools select plugins and check idle maker.then to activate right click on the pidgin tray icon and your idle maker will appear… put how many minutes you want to appear idle and you're done!
        As IP is very simple, all you have to do is chatuiesti with the person that you want to know the ip and then in the chat you command CTRL + O to bring up a status and IP The person who chatuiesti! here's the rub might not work with every id depends on what the person has IM and generally net.Dar connection with yahoo messenger pidgin going to find ip! enhanced work and all the best! hope I've been helpful!

  59. I ended up using pidgin because my handwriting is no longer visible in yahoo messenger… I reinstalled yahoo messenger and the same. I also tried the run method> regsvr32… But it still doesn't work. And I see that it works very well.

  63. At the moment I can't connect with Pidgin on facebook, I tried many times, I looked on the net, it doesn't work, on yahoo it works, maybe a short tutorial… I use Ubuntu 14 lts, ​​Try it before you say "'Make the setting hard…." Maybe it doesn't work for me, but from what I found on the net, I'm not clear, it's not a critical problem 🙂
