    MSN for Mac doesn't support video chat. You need aMSN or Mercury MSN for that

    Hopefully by the end of the year we'll see video support in messenger for the mac. Microsoft is currently working on a beta version.

    I want MSN support for iChat instead... MSN for Mac has always been crap. Beta is ultimately buggy and there's like two guys working on it. Adium FTW!

    Yeah I got tired of MSN for Mac since you couldn't webchat or text people's phones.

    So I downloaded Adium and have been happy ever since. :)
