    Does anyone know when Yahoo Messenger will fully work with MAC OSX? I have been waiting a long time to be able to use my iSight with Yahoo Messenger. I want to be able to use voice and video at the same time. 6 months ago I heard that maybe with a new upgrade it will work. It still hasn't happened. I am forced to use Skype which is fine, but I have to talk all my contacts into downloading that. They (PC users) do not understand why I cannot use my iMac w/ iSight and Yahoo Messenger.

    iSight and Yahoo Messenger

    I have downloaded Yahoo Messenger Beta 3.0 and that allows me to use audio. Voice and Video Conversation were fine until iSight had problems two days ago.

    I use iSight on YM and see myself yet I could not get anyone to view me and I cant view anyone either. Please Help me!!! :confused:

    I have been having some trouble with yahoo messenger.

    Up until recently I was able to view a particular webcam, but it now no longer works. I can still see others' webcam fine, but when he asks me or I send an invite it just continually says "Inviting 1 Viewer" and nothing happens. (Pic attached)

    Wierdly, this only seems to happen with him, and its not every time, its very random.

    This is very annoying as I need the webcam function in order to see some work I am overseeing in the states. Is there any info on why this happens? I have checked firewall connections etc.
