10.5: A fix for broken video chats and screen sharing
Authored by: skeese on Jan 03, '08 03:06:18PM

As the original post says, you have to turn OFF screen sharing in System Preferences:Sharing. I had screen sharing and file sharing turned on. I turned them both off (everything is off) and now I can conduct a video iChat session from a MacBook across an Airport to T1 in California to wired iMacs in Tennessee. Before the change I could initiate a session usually but it would freeze as soon the other end replied. For a month or so I could not even get a picture on the Video Preview. That required resetting the Power Management Unit (PMU).
