    I was wondering if there is an IM application that allows MSN users to log in, and use the regular MSN activities, such as video calling, voice calling, webcam, games etc.

    Thanks for your help.

    Try Mercury Messenger. Its a Java Based Application (runs a little slow) but it comes quite close to WLM for Windows.

    URL : mercury.im

    hope that helps!

    He wants webcam, and unless I am missing something, Adium doesn't support webcam. aMSN does, but its sort of....well its just not as sleek and refined as Adium, if you absolutely NEED to use webcam over MSN, aMSN is the way to go.

    Thanks.
    aMSN has got to be the ugliest thing I've ever seen. I'm just going to have to stick with Adium at the moment.
    Thanks again.

    How can these obviously good programmers behind Adium, not be able to make a webcam application?

    While the crappy looking AMSN has everything, voiceclips, audio chat, webcam and nudges.

    yeah AMSN is the best in terms of video chatting for MSN. I use ADIUM for my day to day chatting. I pop open iChat for AIM chatting, and use stickam.com for my other needs

    I do'nt know how people like Adium. If it allowed support for adding custom emoticons, then I'd use it, but it's lacking a lot of stuff that I'm missing as a heavy MSN user. And since I'm in Canada, it's the only damn way to communicate with others.

    The same can be said for Microsoft and their decision to take their sweet time adding video chat to Windows Live: Mac

    Heh too true, also a Canadian resident, can be annoying how EVERYONE has MSN, and those who actually use AIM are the absolute minority.

    No not really. They made MSN for Windows, not for Mac. I think this is a concious decision to let users experience more on windows than on Mac.
