    I never got to see how iChat looks when you videochat with multiple people. I just wanna see it for real.

    Can people post there iChat account names here so we can try out a conference?

    If you're worried about privacy, you can PM your names or just delete (edit) your post after a few days, so it won't be in Google Cache for too long.

    EDIT: Removed my AIM name. Problem is resolved.

    I can't even start a video or audio chat with someone over Bonjour. Text messages work, but no audio or video. Has anyone got this to work in 10.4.10?

    That can't be possible. I chat all the time with my friends over the internet. Not sure with bonjour though but I think I've done it before so I don't really know what the problem is. I assume both are using iChat?

    Hmm, you're the first one I know where it still works. Could you try and call me on iChat? My account is on the top of the page.

    Hmm, if I want to add an AIM buddy do I have to include the @aim.com part? Or just type in the username?

    Choose AIM in the 'Account type' drop down box, then just put in the username :)

    I just had a sucessful audio chat with a powerbook (PPC) user. Maybe it's only intel to intel?

    Google "iChatters"

    They may be able to help you out, personally it is a little freaky so I have never tried it but it may be what you are looking for! :)

    Cool, thanks. That's what I was looking for. iChat video works with some people only for me... I'm gonna check that out.
