    This is so great! I have been waiting for a Yahoo messenger update for macs forever! It is not clear whether or not this new version has pc-to-pc calling. I do not see the phone symbol (like the windows version has) that you use to make a call to another user. Can anyone comment? thanks a lot!

    HI Furi0us.Bee:

    I havent' tested the beta video as of yet, but if it's like the previous version, no ports were necessary to be opened.

    Ever since I downloaded Yahoo Messenger 3.0, I have not been able to view other user's webcams.
    II am using a USB cam.
    PC users are able to view my webcam no problem, but I can't seem to view theirs. When they send me a cam invite, I never receive the invite. If I click on the "View My Webcam" under their names on the buddylist, nothing happens.
    There doesn't seem to be an option in the menu anymore to view their cam either.
    How in the heck do I open their cams?
