I just got a web cam, It's not an iSight I donít even know what it is I got it off eBay. MSN messenger being for Windows isnít working with so I need some suggestions on other messenger services ie. yahoo (but I can't log into that for some reason) which I can use my webcam on.
Oh and it has to be available for Windows users as well as the people I want to use it with use Windows.

iChat with AIM is the only one I know of that can use video.
My roommate bought a webcam and it didn't work with his iBook at all, though. There are only a handful that will work with Mac OS. Post back with the brand/model when you find it.I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Yahoo! Messenger video chats do work in Mac OS X.
Though, Macs are picky about which camera you use.
The only one I have seen that works without fail, every time, is the iSight which I ended up getting myself.__________________________________________________
