    Messenger that supports webcam?
    Hello all, I have just recently bought a mac book pro but i'm struggling to find an instant messenger that supports webcam? I used to use Msn Messenger on my PC.

    Is there one? I was looking in to Adium but it seems that doesn't even support it?


    Help would be very much appreciated, thank you, George

    Specs:
    iMac late 2007 10.11.b4, iMac 2008 10.10.5, Macbook2007 10.7.5, Mac Mini 10.7.5, iPhone 3GS Note 8!!
    At this point in time the only MSN client for OSX that supports Video Chat is aMSN.

    MSN for OSX is way behind the times but they are finally working on a new version with full Video and Audio support. In the mean time try aMSN. It should work for you for now. Adium is a great multi chat client but does not support Video at this time. That is also being worked on.

    I hope that helps a bit.

    Yeah in the case with either, if you want to uninstall just drag the application to the trash and empty.

    No problem with the questions. That is what we are here for.

    If you have any other questions ask away.
