    You can't at the moment. Messenger:Mac does not have this feature.

    Download aMSN messenger. That should give you the feature you need :)

    pknz is correct in saying that Messenger:Mac doesn't support webcam at all...

    does Mercury supporting MSN network video conference now? (video/audio together)
    if so, that would be a nice one.

    IM software

    I'm looking for a reliable multiclient IM download, preferably one that allows video chat. Any good suggestions?

    Not yet and I'm on version 1.9 release candidate 1.

    There are a few multiple protocol clients (Fire, Proteus, and Adium) but none support video (or audio?) chat yet.

    Mercury-aMSN

    Hi there, I just downloaded aMSN and compared it with Mercury. The latter seems to be better, at least for webcam stuff...

    best,
    a.
