    Does anyone know anything about how to adjust the video quality with AIM 5.5? I'm trying to chat with a friend overseas and so far the results have only been, 'OK' to say at best.

    At first I had my iChat prefs set to 100Kbs and both our video was very blurry according to my friend, i just tried it after setting the bandwidth limit to none on iChat and she is reporting that my cam is clear, but hers is still very blurry on her end and on mine.

    I had her walk through the main option categories in the AIM preferences but nothing jumped out at me as what we were looking for.

    When i check the connection doctor i see the Remote stats as something like 20kbps, but it should be more like 200kbps atleast.

    We are both on broadband.

    I've chatted with her on MSN and Paltalk via the win2k machine at my house and the quality is fine so it would appear not to be connection quality in general.
