    Can anyone explain how does iChat and windows AIM 5.5 work for the voice chat ??? My friend just downloaded AIM 5.5 but we can't do the voice chat, or it just supports video chat ??

    I don't think that's been implemented. I've also tried one-way video chat with my iSight, my friends don't have webcams yet, with no success. I'm guessing only two-way video chat works between the two. Which I'm about to try in a few days when they get cameras. :D

    Web Cam on the PC
    iSight on the Mac
    Mic on the PC and speakers or headset

    I haven't got this to work because I haven't been able to get a PC that meets all those requirements. I have a web Cam but when I try to install it it says the Drivers are not supported on XP. You have to have a webcam on the PC or it will only do text chat.

    I'm sure that you can download updated drivers from the manufacturer's website.
