    after I installed snow leopard ichat will not support a 3 person video chat without the 3rd person timing out. In leopard I was able to support 4 people with no problem. I have already checked and my bandwidth limit is set to none so thats not the problem. Any help is appreciated.

    Pehaps try Chax, which is an add-on for iChat. You can also try Adium which is another app altogether. While Adium does not have Video Chat, there is an add-on to support video chat that you can try. Both are long-shots.

    I have been having weird experiences with Snow Leopard too.

    If you actually read his post, you'll know your post isn't very helpful. Chax is just an add-on to iChat, it won't help his timeout problems. Adium doesn't have video chat, so that doesn't help him any, either.

    I've heard that this is a common problem. I would wait for the next point update to see if Apple fixes it..

    I realize Adium does not have Video Chat, as I said in my previous post, but I have heard of add-ons to Adium. Yes, I realize it is a long-shot.

    And, yes, I realize Chax is "just an add-on" (which was also in my previous post). You never know, it could help! Bumzo seems desperate, so long shot attempts could be his only hope.

    I can't keep a video chat going for longer than 2 minutes, then it just freezes. Haven't found a fix yet! :confused:
