    For the past month or so, whenever I try to ichat with another macbook user, the vidio chat gets frozen at "starting" and has a send error report message.

    I'm surprised this hasn't been fixed yet. What is going on?

    Usually means there's an issue with one of your routers/firewalls.

    As for troubleshooting it...it can be hit-or-miss. Opening up the port iChat uses for video chat is one way. Going about this is different for each make of router however.

    I've found skype to be 1000% better at punching through troublesome firewalls. The video quality isn't as nice as iChat but it gets the job done.
