Hey Everyone..I have a problem...

I just got a macbook which I am super excited about and i love it but i have one problem. I have a girlfriend who lives quite a ways away and we talk to each other via webcam on msn. She has a pc and it worked fine when I had a pc but I realized that msn does not support video chat on the mac. What is the best program for me to use that will have the best video chat? I downloaded skype for mac..and it's ok. I've had some problems with it cutting off calls every ten minutes but I'm dealing with it. I tried Ichat and she signed up for AIM but we couldn't get the video to work. And I don't think AIM has good video anyway. Does yahoo work on macs? I dunno...i'm lost. I'm hoping I can get something that works because I got the mac so that I would be able to move around the house and I was sick of pcs. Can you help me? Thanks

Click the link ;)

It's an open source variant on MSN Messenger, has full video support on the Mac.

I just use iChat but I see it dosent work which is odd. A lot of my friends have it and it works but Yahoo is great for video chatting I hear.

Skype isn't working well. Picture is horrible and it keeps shutting off so we quit that. I think i have the most recent iChat.. We are using amsn and it's working out great so far! Thanks a bunch for the recommendations. Only bummer is amsn doesn't seem to have voice besides the sending the voice clip. But we'll deal with it. Thanks :)
