Considering what ichat can do, it got me thinking about the potential of the technology. What about being able to stream videos you've made, or keynote presentations, or be able to just watch a person's screen?

I know this is possible just by aiming the camera at the screen, but it would be better quality if it didn't have the perspective, hand shaking the camera, lighting issues, refresh, etc, and just went straight through ichat.

I know there are times when I'd like to be able to audio chat with someone and collaberate on something, but have them watch the screen, or a portion of it, instead of me.

(It now occurs to me that you could video out and reroute the signal back in and do it that way. I'd delete the post if I could.)
