    Well having visited the site this programs looks awesome! so many addons and extras you can get for this program.

    My experiance with programs that can do so much seem laggy with addons, is this true for Adium X?

    Any good feed back with this program partly the MSN and Yahoo side of things?

    Any feedback welcome

    Most adium extras don't add functionality, they just replace the standard look and feel. So you should have little/no performance impact as nothing is really being added.

    The scripts and real feature enhancements there are will require additional processor power, but their impact should be minimal.

    Does Adium interface to the iSight camera for, say, MSN video conversations? I've downloaded it but didn't see an option in the 5 minutes I've had to play with it so far... if it doesn't out of the box, is there a plugin perhaps?

    No, Adium doesn't currently support video conferences.

    You'll need to use iChat AV, Skype, aMSN or Yahoo messenger beta for video chatting under OS X.

    Oh well, that's a shame... aMSN is horrible (compared to Adium) and I guess that's the only one that would allow an MSN video chat.

    I have been having the same problem...I can send files to some friends but my friend with a macbook cant send files to me, and I cant send any to him.

    Does anyone know what I can be done to solve this problem?

    Also is there a way to share photos in an Adium convo like in iChat?


    Thanks in advance
