    Hi, just got my iMac Intel. And I found out there's a camera icon in iChat AV. Is there anyway I simply disable the camera function in that particular application?

    Thanks.

    In the iChat preferences, I believe you can turn the camera off.

    Or use any of the following:
    1. Duct-tape
    2. Sticky note
    3. Spray paint
    4. Old underwear, with elastic band (stretch over top to cover isight)

    In my opinion, old underwear is the best way to end your iSight problems.

    All around and easy to find
    Old underwear! old underwear!
    Not at all would anyone mind
    Old underwear! old underwear!

    To find them drapped across your screen
    to protect you from being seen
    Old underwear! old underwear!
    Old underwear! old underwear!


    omg! I'M OFFICIALLY INSANE. GOD HELP ME.

    (Oh, I found out there's a 'disable iSight function' under one of the menu... yet that option isn't available in iChat Preference) :eek:
