    There is no YM beta 7 for mac, only YM version 3.0 beta 1. This version supports video but not voice. If you want video with voice, you can use Skype or iChat.

    Yeah I used to use the chat rooms on Yahoo when they were Java driven. Then one day I got the message that I had to use Y!M to access the chat rooms. The message gave me a link to download Y!M for Mac, so I followed it. I downloaded Y!M, installed it, and ran it, but it gave no way to get into the chat rooms. It was like Yahoo was throwing a party and even though they invited everyone, when Mac's showed up they slammed the door.
    I haven't been ab;e to find an email address so that I can email Yahoo to inquire and complain. They act like they are owned by MS.

    just a question... can you use iChat to "chat" with someone without a .mac account? what if your friend only uses YM, can you still use iChat? any suggestions?

    thanks...

    ;)

    iChat will only work with .mac and AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) accounts.

    If you need to chat with someone using YM, I suggest using the free Adium.

    Hey! I haven't tried if this still works with Leopard, but in Tiger it did. You can use a Jabber client to use iChat to talk to your YM buddies... read nalang here or here
