Talk, PC to MAC webcam, is it possible?

Help. does anyone know the PC as well as the Mac? I have a PC using the logitech quickcam and my brothre has a Mac with the built in isight webcam and we can't quite figure out how to get them to talk with each other. We are using AIM to get logged in. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I've chatted before on my iSight using iChat with someone on AIM with a logitech cam. He's on iChat? It should work. What's the problem?

I believe the older version of AIM for Windows is needed for the video chat. I don't think the newer release supports video chat.

I have done iChat to AIM before to myself once, just to try it out. I also used macam for my webcam (happened to come with a lego set I bought years back, works fine with macam though) attached to my PowerMac G4 through USB.

That's correct, it's linked from the Guide. Otherwise you can just use Skype.
