    I am on an imac and I use ichat to talk with family who also have imacs. I would also like to talk with people who are on windows. Is there a program that is compatible with both mac and windows and does video conferencing?

    thanks for your help.

    Also, Windows users on AIM can video chat with Mac users on iChat, although it's a little flakey sometimes

    As long as you talk to someone on the computer it doesn't.
    If you intend to call a landline or a cell phone you will have to pay.
    (It used to be free till January) I miss those times :(

    iChat is nice to use if you are talking with people on AIM and iChat, and whatever else is compatible with iChat. But I have found that Skype has a better picture and audio when v-chatting.
