Use one-way audio and video chats in iChat AV Apps
If you would like to use the video chat feature in iChat AV with someone but only one of you has a webcam (or microphone for that matter), then you can control-click on a buddy and select "One-way video chat" (or "One-way audio chat").

[robg adds: I had overlooked this feature entirely until someone pointed it out to me. Now I use it to send video feeds of the new baby to my camera-less relatives.]

Use one-way audio and video chats in iChat AV

In addition to control-clicking, you can choose "Invite to One-Way Video Chat" from the buddies menu after selecting a buddy.

Minimum requirements
Authored by: danielmaui on Jul 03, '03 02:03:27PM

At least for the beta of iChatAV, it seems you must have at least a 600MHz G3 in order to be able to receive the video (same requirements for sending video). I'm on a RAM loaded Pismo (G3 500MHz) and when someone tries to send one-way video I get a message that video is not supported on this system.

Use one-way audio and video chats in iChat AV

Does anyone know if this will work when the person receiving from me cannot use iChat? They would be using AIM on a G3/300 or a PC.

I cannot get the one way video show up when I control click. The one way vdeo selection is grey and prevents me from clicking it. What is wrong? Thanks
