    The right direction is that your computer doesn't support conferencing. Not much you can do about that.

    Have you been able to do it before on the same computer?

    Somewhere in time...
    First of all, make sure your iSight is working properly. Open Photo Booth and if you can see yourself on the screen, then it's working fine. If not, you might have an issue with the iSight.
    Secondly, try Skype. Give it a go and in the Preferences menu, go to Video and you should be able to see yourself again. If not, adjust the settings accordingly. Then, ask your friend/family member/colleague to download Skype too and use that instead. Or maybe you can tinker with your current conferencing program, so you can make it work.
