    Is there an Instant Messager for AIM that works with iSight besides iChat. Because when I try to video chat with one of my friends, an error box shows and then it stops the chat and i don't know how to fix it... Any help?? Thanks in advance.

    Nine times out of 10, this is caused by networking/firewall issues, which trying a different application isn't going to solve. iChat is very reliable for video chat - provided it's not being blocked by something.

    Take a look at Apple's support document on the subject

    i was using ichat/aim instead of skype because skype had an annoying audio feedback.
    But when I gave it another try a couple of weeks ago, it was really better than ichat/aim in terms of video quality. No audio feedback neither.

    AIM: Adium, I believe, works well.

    MSN/ Hotmail: Later this year, Microsoft is planning to release a newer msn messenger/ windows live to work with iSight.
