    I'm trying to have a one-way video chat with one of my friends on iChat (they have AIM), and they can only hear me, but no video is showing up. Is this something on my end or their end? Thanks for any info in advance!

    is the green light lighting up next to your camera? Also, are you clicking their name and then the camera icon at the bottom of the ichat window? If you click the phone next to their name, you will just have audio.

    You'll need to provide more information so someone can help you.

    All I do is right-click on their name and choose "Invite to One-Way Video Chat" and the camera light does come on up top. I never have problems on sites like Stickam or anything, but for some reason I have yet to be able to get anything going on iChat. The person I was trying to video chat with did say that when they accepted my request for video chat, that it prompted them to buy a camera. So, I'm thinking that it may be on their side, but I'm just not 100% sure and was hoping that someone on here has had experience with this.
