    My friend and I were trying to start a video chat over iChat AV... It works fine for me to connect to other people, but it doesn't work to connect to him. We are both on new MacBook Pros.

    Here are the error messages:

    Mine:
    Date/Time: 2006-07-19 16:25:38.693 -0400
    OS Version: 10.4.7 (Build 8J2135)
    Report Version: 4

    iChat Connection Log:
    AVChat started with ID 116828083.
    jeff3185: State change from AVChatNoState to AVChatStateWaiting.
    0xf082560: State change from AVChatNoState to AVChatStateInvited.
    0xf082560: State change from AVChatStateInvited to AVChatStateConnecting.
    jeff3185: State change from AVChatStateWaiting to AVChatStateConnecting.
    jeff3185: State change from AVChatStateConnecting to AVChatStateEnded.
    Chat ended with error -8
    0xf082560: State change from AVChatStateConnecting to AVChatStateEnded.
    Chat ended with error -8




    What does this mean, and how can I fix it?

    quicktime prefs tip worked for us

    Hello,

    I got this tip from user defraine1 on MacUser:

    http://www.pcpro.co.uk/macuser

    I set our streaming speed lower than that (we don't have a T1) and the "-8" errors went away instantly!

    "goto sys prefs/quicktime/streaming/streaming speed, set to 1.5mbps(dont use automatic)

    In ichats prefs click on video and change bandwidth limit to NONE.

    Restart iChat. "

    Take care,

    awiz
