    I don't think the official Microsoft version of MSN Messenger works with the iSight camera that the macs have. Personally, I use "aMSN" which supports C2C using the iSight.

    As far as I know MSN Messenger only works with Windows. It won't work with Mac, Linux, Solaris, or any of the other Unix based systems.

    I have a mac as well. iChat and Yahoo both work for camming. However, you are able to add MSN users to your Yahoo, but it won't allow you to cam with them. I have no idea why.

    There is an MSN messenger available for Mac, but it is not webcam compatible.

    I had to check out what aMSN was. It's a Unix compatible clone of MSN Messenger.

    msn for Mac hasn't been updated in years and doesn't support webcams

    Yahoo is compatable with mac, so you should be able to cam

    You can also use third-party MSN clients which connect to MSN, like aMSN and Kompote

    Skype will also work with a mac but.....

    ...mac's don't seem to support many webcams. My old cam worked on my mac (using another 3rd party program) but my newer one didnt.

    Get a PC and a mac :p That's what I do lol
