I wanna do a 3 way video chat...i'm on a mac and so is another buddy. Another friend is on a PC...

..What service can we use? I'm assuming ichat won't work like that considering one of us is on a PC?

Can skype do it?

Yes, Skype is available for both Mac and PC. I think iChat is just Mac to Mac.

Actually, I'm not sure. Take a look here on Apple's site.
I know iChat can do up to four people but I'm assuming all four people each need to be on iChat on a Mac.

I saw a link that shows a Skype beta, only available on windows, that allows five way video conferencing.

I was going to say that in my experience Skype can only do one-on-one video (but multiple people in a voice call), but if the new beta allows this then fair enough.

You won't be able to use iChat, because like you said one of your friends is on a PC.
