My friends and I are big users of the Direct IM feature in the AIM 5.x client, which allows you to send pictures and sounds directly in the chat window. Since switching to OSX, my friends have been mad at me because we can't do this anymore (unless I start up parallels, which is sort of a pain). Are there any alternatives to this? I'm trying to think of a web-based service that would allow for this - real time media sharing. I googled a bit and heard about something called FlickrLive but it seems that service is no longer available. Any other recommendations?
