    so all of the sudden iChat is saying that this computer does not support video chat... it was never like this before. Is there a way to reset the camera?

    Do you have the iSight camera built-in?

    Try repairing permissions thru Disk Utility.

    Somewhere between my imagination and reality
    First verify that your computer recognizes the camera by going to System Profiler. You can get tehre by going to apple menu --> about this mac --> more info. Then click USB which is at the bottom of the hardware heading in the left pane of the system profiler window. Look at the USB High-Speed Bus heading. You should see "Built-in iSight" listed. I don't believe repair permissions will do anything for you.
