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.

System Specs
12" iBook G4
800MHz PowerPC G4
384MB DDR SDRAM
Mac OS X 10.3.9

Getting a New Mac soon.

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...
