    So lately I've been having trouble using AOL Instant Messenger version 4.7 for my Mac OSX. By lately I mean the past few days. I try to log on and it gets to 'signing on' but can't get to 'finishing up' and eventually it says the connection timed out. I try on different screen names, etc. and it doesn't work.

    Any ideas?

    I just started using Adium last night. According to their FAQ, it does not support video.

    ichat supports video, aim for mac crashes when using the mighty mouse scroll wheel.
