My guess is that a request to "view your webcam" is when someone else
wants to view your webcam, and a "webcam invite" is the opposite, i.e.
someone wants you to view their webcam.

Masca (or anyone), can you clarify?

Would it be more clear if we changed that string from
"%s has sent you a webcam invite, which is not yet supported."
"%s invited you to view their webcam, but this is not yet supported."

I'm happy to make the change if someone can confirm that it is correct.
