Many i Chat AV users experienced problems and flakiness trying to video conference with Windows AOL Instant Messenger users, so Skype is worth trying as a more reliable alternative.
Skype's ability to access and integrate your Apple Address Book contacts and search their directory for pals helps build a buddy list quickly at Skype.
Unlike many chat apps, ISPQ VIDEO CHAT has an INTEGRATED COMMUNITY: You can browse profiles andandand member pics, text message with still images and audio clips - and optionally video chat: 1 on 1 or Multi-party.
Community is a key feature sorely missing from some other standalone Mac chat apps.
There's also integrated Face Book chat with your FB friend list.
With Skype HD, high-quality video conferencing is supported on select Mac HD web camera models - so get and stay current for an optimal video call experience.
Microsoft had added video support in the updated Messenger v8 for Mac.
Until this release there were two alternate MSN clones for Mac that try to do video; Mercury Messenger and AMSN you might want to check out.Both seems somewhat-flakey and sorta fail to deliver a commercial quality Messenger video compatible application solution.Recently, Microsoft acquired Skype and is making it the de-facto chat solution for the windows platform, so MSN Messenger has been phased-out.This is a fully-featured cross-platform videoconferencing program the Apple and PC platform has - in most aspects - what i Chat could have been.[FYI: ISPQ's parent, Nano Com used to license out it's video conferencing code.Connect In Real-Time To Friends With Apple Messages, i Chat, Messenger, Skype, ISPQ Video Chat, Camfrog & More.
