    Specs:
    Powerboook G4 17" 1.67GHz 512MB ram, iPod 60GB, iPod shuffle
    Video Conference
    Ok, so I have an iBook.
    And a webcam.
    Logitech Webcam for Notebooks Pro.
    Mac supported.

    And my friends who are on a PC want to do video conferences/see me.
    Problem is, there ain't no iChat for PC.

    And Mac MSN doesn't support webcam. I know about Mercury but it only can receive webcams and not transmit. And it is very unstable.

    So, is there any programs out there which I can use? or any work around.

    Thank you guys very much.

    The best way for video chat between Mac and PC would be iChat on the Mac and AIM on the PC. The Windows AIM-client (5.5 or later) can do video chat with Apple's iChat.

    It's the only way I know that really works. Allthough I'm not sure if a multple user video conference is possible or not...
