I am trying to setup a video conversation via MSN Messenger with a MAC User.
My PC has Messenger V7 but the MAC user has V5 which does not support video conversation.
We cannot find anywhere to download v7 for Mac.
Anyone help please?

V7 is not available for the Mac. Only V5 which was released a few weeks ago. In terms of Windows features the Mac version is behind.

In that case does anyone know if it Is possible to use "i chat" to have a video chat with someone using messenger version 7?

I don't think that's possible because the two services won't connect.

But iChat can connect to AIM [AOL's service] of which there is AIM available for Windows users and supports video. click here

I don't know for certain if it will work, but you can try.

We have connected PC to MAC via AIM successfully and CHAT works OK. Video not yet working. A Webcam is connected to the PC but I have been told that this should be a FIREWIRE webcam.
Would you please explain what a Firewire webcam is and whether I do need one to the PC.

Thanks for pointing us to AIM. After a bit of fun it is all working OK.
