    Ok so everyone in my family uses windows messenger, i dont know why, not even aim, which is what i use (Adium).

    Is there a messaging client for leopard that allows me to video chat with windows messenger? Microsoft messenger for mac doesnt support this feature yet.

    thanks!

    Really? As far as I was aware, Adium has no video support.

    Maybe reading could help :D

    aMSN or Mercury Messenger (google them)

    Both are not native... aMSN is TCL/Tk and Mercury is Java...

    You're kidding! :eek: When did they take that away?

    Ugh. I used so many over the years that I probably mixed up aMSN and Adium, sorry.

    I just use iChat now; screw the rest of them. Apple had the IM protocols first.

    As far as I'm aware, iChat is pretty much useless and certainly wouldn't "talk" to MSN last time I tried it. When I need to do a video chat, I use Skype.

    It does work and pretty well, the problem is the ugly interface
