iChat Cams

Post by skasmo » July 26th, 2010, 9:43 pm

Is there a way to use ichat with a mac that doesn't have a cam, and be able to see the camera of another macs cam. Every time I try it says video feed not available

I'm not sure I understand the question. If you're asking whether one-way video calling is available, then yes iChat can do that. The party with the cam must initiate this by right-clicking the party who doesn't have a cam's name and choosing one-way video call.

Is that what you wanted?

I tried it that way and The screen comes up for one way video chat, but when It comes to loading the camera it says no video feed. Yet it works when on my imac when both computers are using a webcam?

Do you have any other apps open that might control the video camera (like Skype)?
