    Okay, my wife and kids have a PC, I'm 1200 miles a way with our Mac. Do I have to use iSight and what is the best program for video chat? We both have high speed conections, so bandwith is about as good as we can get. I do have a digital camcorder on my end. She's just going to get a decent PC webcam.

    Suggestions please!

    Thanks,

    Bryan

    On the Mac end: iChat
    On the PC end: AIM

    If you have a digital video camera I believe you can use that.

    Skype and iChat are the best choices, though iChat needs to be paired with AIM version 5.5 or later, including version 6 but not their alternative client Triton.
