Is there a work around for getting Paltalk to work on a Mac?

exactly. IF your asking if there is a was to run paltalk on the mac operating system the answer is NO. and we will all be dead before their programmers get around to it. do you have an intel mac?

Crossover for OS X might do the trick if you've got a newer intel mac.

Edit: I just tested, and the PalTalk software does install, but chokes on the new user screen. If you have an existing account or can register an account on a PC, you might be able to get past this.

Has anyone else tried running Paltalk through bootcamp on the newer intel based macs?

Notable Wackbagger Tax Kuntz has a Mac and is on Paltalk often. His workaround is that he bought a cheap PC that he uses only for Paltalk. This seems to be the most straight forward way.

This is no longer the best way!!!! I run the new parallels 3.0 on my MacBook Pro and can access Paltalk, as well as use my built in iSight. Contact me at MikeLowell on Paltalk or AIM for details on how I did it.

Yes, Parallels is they way to go to run Windows in a virtual window on the MAC. I did this with the trial version of Parallels. The only issue I had was it was a resource hog. I heard this was fixed in 3.0.

I tried crossover for paltalk a while back and it wasn't one of their supported programs at the time.
