I've been searching for over 40 minutes here, in Android forums, the Apple support site and Yahoo's help section, and I haven't come across anyone with my specific situation. MacNN members have always been the most helpful and responsive on the Internet, so I figured that this would be the best place to post.

I have downloaded the latest beta of Yahoo Messenger (3.0.1) on my MacBook AIR. I have a MyTouch 4G with the most recent Android version of Yahoo Messenger loaded. Using my two different Yahoo accounts, I am able to IM easily between the two, but I am not able to video chat. When I open a chat window, the "video" button is greyed out, both on the notebook and on my phone. The video button is not typically greyed out when trying to contact offline people. I have yet to use either the notebook or the phone to video chat with other people.

From what I understood, this was supposed to be possible. Have people heard otherwise? Has anyone been able to do this successfully?
