    ichat supports google talk! what about msn?
    I just added my google talk acct. through jabber to ichat.
    I want to be able to use ichat for IM. I tried the same for my hotmail account, however it won't connect.

    So what's the story? :dive:

    Anyone know how to do this?
    Thanks,

    I had tried that but somehow I could not get it working. I signed on and got a jabber account to but somehow cannot connect.

    I have no idea where I am doing wrong.

    Thanks,

    Cant be done via Jabber. Wait until 10.5 version of iChat then it might be possible.

    Two Lils eh :flower: Mercury supports MSN Video chat. It's Java based, the UI is OK but not perfect but I'm sure that will be resolved over time.

    Thanks Vicky,

    Believe me I have tried everyting, and found out about the Mercury over the weekend and downloaded it as well. Video chat is there but the viewing is not great. I guess until things change we have to thank what we have.
