    Live Messenger

    I installed Parallels 3.0 in the hope of getting Live Messenger to work.
    I have many overseas friends who use that (instead of Skype).
    Unfortunately only audio works , but it cannot recognise the built in I-Sight webcam
    btw: Skype works perfectly in Mac OS

    aMSN (http://www.amsn-project.net/) can do web cam streaming but it can not stream audio at this point. If you don't mind typing but just want to see the person then aMSN is a good alternative to the windows MSN client.

    If you buy Microsoft Office 2008 will the audio and video work in MSN? It comes with MSN messenger.
