A Mac to PC USB webcam video chat solution
Authored by: sam_head on Jul 13, '05 06:22:20PM
AIM 5.9 to iChat works well for video conferencing. I have video conferenced using iChat with dozens PC users from around the world who use AIM. It works well enough, though not nearly as good as iChat to iChat. But it is free and so is the screen name.

You do need Windows XP and it has to be set up properly. The New York Times suggests reading the iChat-to-AIM video conference tutorial I wrote at:

It has a complete set up guide, troubleshooting tips, firewall port settings and more. Be sure to follow the instructions exactly for opening firewall ports that SP2 closes if you want to get AIM to work with video.

the URL you posted is bad. Did you mean to say...

http://www.mvldesign.com/video_conference_tutorial.html?__

Odd as the URL looks with it's ending characters, that's what it takes for me to get to that tutorial of yours.

thanks!
