    Can someone reccomend a program that allows a windows xp computer and OSX10.3 to communicate via a usb webcam? I know iChat conencts to the AIM network, and AIM supports webcams, but the person on the xp says the camera option is dimmed when talking to me, but not to other windows users. Any suggestions?

    This is the sorest spot I have for my Mac experience. I wish Mac to PC video chat was a simple experience but it isnt. Probably the best software I have found for this is SightSpeed (www.sightspeed.com) there is a free version and a cheap version and the video and audio is acceptable.

    Getting ichat and Aim to work together is a bear for many people and simple for others. Personally I gave up months ago and have an iSight cam collecting dust.
