Hi, I have a Mac Powerbook G3 computer with OSX, and my friend has a Mac G3 desktop computer with OS9. We have tried Yahoo! Instant Messenger and iVisit, but neither are working well for us. I would like to know if there is a free software program that works on both OSX and OS9 that will allow us to video and audio chat.

    Jim Rogalski...

    From what I gather there was an earlier version of AIM that did support "something" along those lines, but I never used it to speak of.

    You may want to check over the site below as they do try to keep things up to date.

    Ron,
    Thank you for your input on this question. However, I have already been to this website, for that is where I found iVisit. Again, thank you for your input.

    If anyone knows how to get iVisit to function properly, that would be very helpful. It works properly the first few times I use it, but it won't connect to the other user after the fourth or so use.

    I used iVist (still do) when I had OS 8.6-OS 9.1.
    In order for iVisit to function properly, your friend will need the following:
    Lot of real RAM
    OS 9.1 or OS 9.2.2
    MRJ 2.2.5 or MRJ 2.2.6
    Cable or DSL internet service
    Good/moderate web cam

    The latest version of iVisit. No older versions must be on the system.
    Check the iVisit folder & remove all old files (old chats).
    iVisit does have its own Forums. Any problems suggest that you post there. The iVisit owners & users are very good at responding back.

    Thank you for your advice. I will not discuss iVisit any further here due to the fact that it is slightly off topic. I will go to the iVisit forums. I am still in need of a new progrm, but if I figure out how to get iVisit to work, I will notify everyone immediatley.

    Thanks,
    Jim
