    Hey all,

    I just got my iSight today, and I know how to use it and all, but I have two questions.

    Can Windows Users use a PC webcam and be able to video chat with me?

    Is it possible to capture video in iMovie with the iSight? (i know about QTBroadcaster, and things like that)

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, but not with iChat. Try Yahoo chat.

    Not directly, no. You have to use the "things like that".

    nope not yet. but i have a feeling this is apples next ipod. it is already a huge hit with apple users with the ease of use with ichat av. i dont think they will step on AOL's toes and make ichat for windows, but i think AOL will incorate isight support as well as compatibility with audio with mac users, just like how AOL added support for .mac users.

    I've used Yahoo video chat, and let me assure you, the quality is comparable to ass, so I personally wouldn't litter my HD with it. I am sure Windows will have their own video chat soon, I've seen quotes by Gates talking about how he is going to pioneer video chat and saw him on some show late at night while flipping through channels. He was talking about video chat, tablet computers, and how he thinks Windows is revolutionizing our culture *cough yeah right cough*
