    Has anyone tried using iChat to do a video chat with someone using Yahoo Messenger or MSN Messenger? If so, how did you set it up? Thanks.

    You can't, iChat uses the AOL instant messenger protocol. MSN and Yahoo all use their own protocol. You have to use AIM with AIM, MSN with MSN, and Yahoo with Yahoo, you can't mix and match.

    If iChat did support them....

    it would be the ULTIMATE messenger.

    But sadly that's not the case..... for now

    But still, do anyone uses Ichat? Where I live almost everybody is on MSN, so I prefer using something like aMsn or Adium.
