    Trying to make a Facetime Audio call on a Mac mini (earbuds with mic plugged in) — when I click the Facetime Audio link on a contact who has an iPhone, it just launches the Facetime app and I get a message that I need to connect a camera to use Facetime. Which makes zero sense since I'm trying to make an audio call. Am I missing something here?

    Yeah, seems like a half-baked feature if you can't use it on a camera-less Mac.

    Broken for me too. Same thing — my mac mini at work and my mac mini at home will not do Facetime Audio without complaining that I need a camera. Lame.
