    Webcam chat
    Ok I'm brand new to the MAC world. My fiance lives in SC for now and I'm in Hawaii so we webcam alot. I found a aMSN app from searching and wanted to know if this would work? She is on a PC. If not is there any way for us to WEBCAM between MAC and PC

    I have, on the other hand, never used aMSN so I can't compare, but Skype is free and works both on a PC and on a Mac

    in the end you are the one using the program, so just try them both out and see for yourself

    if you ever do want to try Skype:
    Skype 2.8 for Mac OS X - Download the latest version of Skype and get free computer calls

    true, if you and your fiance both already have aMSN, go for aMSN ... I never intended for this to become a debate about aMSN vs. Skype sorry for that

    Just double checking, because I am in the same boat, that aMSN is safe? Like it works and everything? I know its a weird question to ask because macs dont get viruses, but I am a new PC convert, and by new I mean that I got my mac just this morning.
    I downloaded MSN live messenger and was very disappointed at the lack of webcam, it doesnt make sense to me, considering macs come with a built in camera...

    If u want to take it a step further you can go to MeBeam.com and do a Multi Party Inter Platform chat - u could host on the Mac and invite in a couple of PCs to the chat. Have not tested recently but used to be better audio using that site with Skype for the Audio.
