Apple iSight webcam iChat AV, anyone?

Postby Elucubrator » Wed Sep 24, 2003 9:01 pm

Well, I just got one of these in the mail, and was wondering whether there were any Textkitters that have both an Apple computer, an iSight camera, iChat AV, and an AIM account who would like to video chat?<br /><br />Apparently, the software is still developmental and there is no compatibility yet between platforms.<br /><br />Barring this, does anyone with a mac know of a solution for videoconferencing which allows one to talk to people using PC computers?<br /><br />later,<br /><br />Sebastian

If Yahoo! Messenger works on your computer, then you should probably be able to have a webcam conference using that with anyone else. AIM is a little bit too picky about external devices.

I do indeed know of a program that allows PC-to-Mac voice chat and video conferencing! A free program called iVisit, downloadable at:<br /><br />http://www.ivisit.info/<br /><br />Hope to *see* you soon! ;D

I'm not sure about ICQ, though.
