Can I do video conferencing on a Mac with MSN Messenger if I have a
web cam or with some other program? Or is Windows Messenger on a
PC the only way you can do video conferencing with a web cam?

Greetings Derrick,

There are literally hundreds of video conferencing applications available on the PC (from MSN
Messenger, Windows Messenger, Netmeeting, EyeBall, etc.). At this time however, the vast
majority do not have equivalent Mac versions.

In fact the only real main instant messaging applications that allow this currently is to use
iChat on the Mac and connect to a recent version of AOL Instant Messenger (on the PC) or use
Yahoo Messenger on both the PC and Mac (http://messenger.yahoo.com).
