During all our work on integrating audio and video into Adium, it seems that a company called MeBeam was way ahead of us. They implemented a cross-platform, protocol-agnostic videochat solution using Flash. The best of all: They allowed us to integrate with their service!

What this means is that starting today, Adium has support for videochat!

MeBeam has very compelling features:
* Cross-platform
* Cross-service
* No installation necessary on the invitee side, except for some IM client, a web browser and the Flash plugin
* Up to 15 people in a multiuser-videochat, not required to use the same IM network
* Fewer issues with firewalls than other solutions

What do you have to do to make use of it? First, you need a webcam obviously, and a headset is recommended. Then, download the plugin and double-click it, so Adium can place it into the right location. Relaunch Adium, and you're good to go.

When you want to videochat with someone, ctrl-click (or right-click) them and choose "Initiate MeBeam Videochat". That's all!
