    Interesting message, I've never received it before but I had a similar issue with video chatting with 3-4 people. Whoever the host is, they will need LOTS of bandwidth while the others will need approx 300 kb/s of bandwidth to maintain the video conference as well.

    Did you try looking under Preferences -> Video, to see if the video feature was turned off?

    Other issues could be Port #, ISP and maybe firewall.
