    Hey all,
    I'm not new to mac really, but this is the first mac i've owned.
    Me and my friends always always have webcam chats over skype. But for some reason I cant find them on skype or anything like that (cause msn messenger doesnt work with webcam on mac).
    I've tried many programs but none work...
    Is there anyway I can use iChat or is there any program that uses webcam chats between windows and mac? I dont want to boot camp just for that...
    Please help!!!:)

    O and the reason I posted this here is cause i'm using the macbook pro, cause i dont know if tha changes anything, and I'm running Leopard.

    Skype supports video chat on Mac (with Windows users).
    Just start a call and hit the little video icon in the bottom left.

    Haven't tried using iChat over AIM with a windows user.

    Most likely a firewall restricting your skype from transmitting.

    Try putting your IP in the DMZ .

    aMSN is a MSN Chat Client.

    Skype is a Skype chat client

    Its completely DIFFERENT clients.
