10.4: Automatically accept video chats in iChat
Authored by: gjlazar on May 24, '05 09:21:58PM

I tried running the suggested command by typing in terminal and it did not owrk. Then I tried to enter in a command dialog and pushed run, and got the reponse, unexpected parameter, 1 , defaults left unchanged, exit.
I tried using 0 in the command and got the same error. What am I doing wrong. In either case auto accept did not work.

the above script has an error in it.
in Unix you need a space and a hyphen before the parameter 1
in other words type:

defaults write com.apple.ichat AutoAcceptACInvitations -1

and it will work as described above by Sancho.
I tested the autoAccept afterwards and it worked like a charm.

The suggested code didn't work for me, but it pointed me in the right direction. In Terminal, I used

defaults write com.apple.ichat AutoAcceptVCInvitations -1

to set iChat audio to automatically accept invitations and ..." -0" to return to manual. Not sure if "AcceptAV" works on some machines while "AcceptVC" works on others, but this worked for me. Hope this helps. DS

10.4: Automatically accept video chats in iChat
Authored by: able9 on Jan 18, '06 01:01:06PM

I have been working on something that is simular - 2 friends who don't know anything about computers would like to be able to do simple video conference with each other out of state. Both have access to dsl/cable internet. I suggested 2 apple computers (ibooks for example) but one of them is old and has trouble with a bunch of mouse clicks, selections, etc. is what you guys have been talking about here, simular? So the question is can you startup ichat with isight and have it auto connect to a given buddy (there would only be one person to connect to at each computer)? For example one ibook would be left on all the time, and the other would be powered up, one click on an icon in middle of the screen, and auto connect to the one and only other person. That person would then see the invite(? and click on it and they would be up and talking/seeing...is this posibble? Thanks for your time and help.

David
