    i have YM Version 3.0 beta 1 (build 18274)

    and it randomly quits... it turns back on most of the time but sometimes i have to launch the program again...

    i am on 10.4.8

    any help would be appreciated...

    my internet connection isnt a problem since i have skype running too... and it doesnt quit.

    unfortunately, that's one common glitch of YM beta (read BETA :) ). you may want to try proteus.

    Sana Yahoo can update their Mac version of YM to the same level as the Windows counterpart. Message archiving, Better Web cam support (i haven't tried to use the Isight webcam yet, pero I've head reports that audio doesn't work) etc....

    Try Adium.

    I use YahooMessenger ONLY for sending/receiving files and video chatting w/ other YM users.

    Maybe the discrepancy is between the Intel and PPC Macs. My YM works fine with my iBook G4, although it lags really bad sometimes.

    Update your OS to 10.4.8. Works perfectly since I last updated. Had similar problem earlier. Resolved. Alternatively. go with SKYPE!! works perfectly! full screen video and voice!

    lucky you!, but the OS 10.4.8 update did not fix this issue for me, nor for others i know.
    yes, skype 2.0 is great :)
