    If you use iChat AV, when using the video feature, what application does the windows person have to use in order to both recieve and send video?

    currently ichat av is a mac only thing, and aim on windows can not pick this up. but i have a feeling that this will be apples next ipod. they will see how much potential it has and come out with a windows version. but instead of developing ichat for windows i think they will just work with aol to build in support. i belive you can use yahoo messenger to use mac and windows, but i havent tried myself, but i have read it here on the site.

    well as of right now yes. but i remember we were all saying this with the ipod when it came out, then mediafour came out with xplay, so give it time, im sure some people will write some drivers maybe, i dont know.
