Until my recent purchase of a MacBook Pro, I'd never used iChat's videoconferencing feature, as I didn't have a webcam. But in the past few weeks, I've gotten addicted... I have family all over the country (all of whom have iMacs or MacBooks), and it's awesome being able to stay in touch "face-to-face." The problem is that I really want to be using my ACD... I'm a grad student and writer, and I'm already sick of staring at the MBP's screen all day. So I need to get an external webcam to put on top of my monitor, but holy crap is that a confusing situation! From what I can tell, I'm going to have to use third-party drivers, and still may or may not be able to use iChat. Argh! I need someone to break this down for me. Money isn't a huge issue, so if the easiest/best bet is to get an iSight on eBay, that's totally doable. Like I said, brand-new MBP running Leopard. I want to stay with iChat and not have to switch to another chat application (all the family members use iChat, and it's easy, and I like it). I don't care about special fancy features... I just want to be able to do what I can do with my built-in iSight. And I want installation to be as straightforward as possible. So tell me... 1: What camera do I buy? 2: What do I do once I have it to make it work? Extra credit question: Repeat above for G4 Mac mini running Leopard. (Not sure if processor type makes a difference.) My fate -- or at least, my frustration level -- lies in your hands. Don't fail me, dear MR ones!
