    Hi there,
    Have a 2011 MBP...I would like to use iChat. But when I link it with my gmail account, I get no option to do video calls with those gchat friends, only normal messaging. Is this normal?

    If this is normal, are there any programs/apps that let me do a video call with someone in gchat?

    I prefer not to use gchat because then I always have to have a window open with gmail open...sort of annoying.
