    yes you can, by using iChat on your side, and AIM on their side.

    Unfortunately, that's the only, more or less working way to video chat with PCs. With games, that's the second big area where the Mac lacks of support.

    Actually Yahoo! also works for video between Mac and PC and there are a few other obscure clients that can also do it.
