    Hey so I've downloaded MSN for mac and just realised it doesn't do video, I realise that they're tryin to work on that, anyone know of a release date?
    For the moment does anyone know of a good program like MSN that will let me use video?

    I use snow leopard btw if that helps..

    cheers guys!

    aMSN, or Adium with a certain plugin...

    As for the release date... it's been a year since they promised to deliver a beta "soon"... they just said it would be available in march, but you must take it with a grain of salt...

    Just use Skype for Mac. You could also try Sightspeed, but Skype is so popular.

    hmmm after my initial excitement i realise that when i try to open webcam chats it says connecting...... then cancels them. Anyone ever had problems with it? Maybe is it the other person?

    Use the MeBeam plugin.

    Do yourself a favor and get off the MSN mentality. Use something like Skype that won't give you headaches.
