    Is there any way i can use the iSight camera in my MacBook as a webcam while using msn?

    I'm currently using Adium to get onto MSN and noticed there was no webcam option, is there another programme that allows it?

    you can use aMsn - http://cmq.qc.ca/4w/amsn/

    This program is okay but not the best, I have used it in the pass and its the only way unless you use bootcamp or parrellels.

    Haven't looked into this for several years now.

    Have you checked Mercury IM? There's also aMSN, which should be a bit better. :)

    aMSN is sadly the only option of AV chat with MSN users. It's pretty bad.

    I used aMSN for the first couple of weeks after getting my first mac. After that, I switched to Adium - it rocks! But no AV support, sorry,

    if you can convince your PC based friends to switch to yahoo messanger or skype, they're both much better options!

    I use Adium for IM, and then Mercury Messenger when I need to use my webcam...
