    Hi there i have a friend who has a MAC and uses Msn messenger 6.1 i think....
    Is there any way of being able to use a webcam with messenger on a mac PC, cause it doesnt seem like he has the option to do so.

    Every time i try i initiate a video conference it tells him that he has an old version of messenger and cannot have access to this feature, Which version should he dowmload so we can chat and use a webcam?

    Cheers.. Pascalito

    I'm quite sure that aMSN is Macs only.

    How do i install it?

    How do i go about installing it? Just open the downloaded file and install like msn and hop it will work? If you have msn already will you lose all your contact?

    cheers

    You might both want to consider something like Skype (www.skype.com) for video/audio chats between PCs and Macs. I've a feeling that aMSN doesn't support audio (could be wrong though). Skype feels better-designed too. (Free, so no harm in trying it out and seeing if it's good for you).

    Don't skype have it's own contacts? That's pretty much the reason why I didn't get it.
