    I rather like Skype. Better audio quality than iChat, but iChat does seem to have better video quality. Can't have it all.

    skype is the best, crossplatform, windows, linux, OSX,
    there is a way to improve skype's video to 640x480, OP can do a google search of "skype 640 480".

    you can actually video chat in adium - cant remember the name of the plugin but if you go the adium blog there is a couple of posts about the new plugin.


    Apparently its not a fully integrated chat for adium but a web based additon that does work.

    keep it out, havent tried if for myself yet as my mb is on the way but i will soon

    i've never found problems with ichat for video chat. however, i do use adium as my main chat client, and if i need to video chat or screen share, i just switch over.

    its currently in development i believe. you can hop over to the cocoaforge forums and see for yourself.
