    I've been checking out the Viewsonic VX2255wmb 22" LCD monitor which comes with an integrated 1.3MB webcam. Anyone have any experience with it and if it's iChat/Skype compatible on a Mac?

    I got it working in iChat but since nobody else I know actually uses iChat, it was more of just an experiment to see if it was recognized - it was.

    I too would be interested in seeing how you got it work. When I called Viewsonic's support they told me it wouldn't. That was nice to know after purchasing it based on their website claiming Mac compatibility.

    Working for me.

    I just bought a Viewsonic VX2255wmb from Costco. I plugged it into my Mac Mini (Intel Core Duo) and fired up iChat. Webcam is working fine. I haven't tested the mic yet, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Did you guys ever get it to work? Did you try it with PhotoBooth?

    How do you like the monitor?

    Just got a ViewSonic VX2255wmb today (from Amazon). Monitor looks nice. iChat fires up plug-and-play. The built in webcam works fine, but the microphone doesn't. I wish I knew that before I bought it. Did a basic online search before hand.

    *** This fact is not mentioned on ViewSonic's USA product info page, but interestingly, it _is_ mentioned on their United Kingdom/Europe product info page.

    Only found this after I went digging.

    Did you write 10.3? I think you did ..... welcome to 2010 your OS is 7 years old. Get a recent OS and it will work fine.
