    Hey Folks
    I'm so green that it drives me nuts. Not only do I not know how to use my MacBook, but I also have never video chatted before. I'm supposed to be chatting on right now, but I can't figure it out. I guess the mic is working, but I can't figure out how to use the cam, even playing around with PhotoBooth.

    Coult someone please give me the quick and easy on how to do this?

    I don't know about, but when you launch photobooth the Camera should automatically come on and you should see what the camera sees in the photobooth window.

    Try following the guide here. The webcam setting you need to choose should be something like 'USB Class Video' or similar.

    However, if you can't see the camera image in PhotoBooth (it appears straight away when you open the program, as tuffluffjimmy said) then there might be a problem with it.
