    hey guys.

    i need some help on what to do. my step dad is in Dubai on business and he uses skype. He cant download anything else as he is not an administrator ( he uses windows xp )

    my mum uses a windows xp laptop with windows 7 on it and also uses skype to chat to my step dad. she is the admin and can download whatever.

    i use a mac and it has ichat but does it work with skype? and if it does how?

    if i download skype will we all be able to chat at once... so is 3 people in a video chat possible?

    If you download Skype you can chat with your parents via Skype, but I don't know if video conferencing is possible with the latest version.

    So in short: iChat is not able to communicate with Skype, so in order to communicate with Skype users, get Skype.
