Mobile Me and AOL Instant Messenger (s aol) accounts work well, however.
As with most Apple programs, setting up i Chat is pretty easy.
You download the program from Apple’s site, and log in with your Apple ID.
Face Time will then prompt you for the email address you want to be identified by.
It’s very easy to set up and use, but for video, the protocols it supports are limited.
Google Video Chat (s goog) accounts, for instance, are rumored to not work well with i Chat video.
Face Time uses your default audio input and output devices.If you thought getting tickets to one of the shows was hard, actually getting even somewhat near the venue is a whole other battle.A few times every week, I’ll play World of Warcraft (s atvi) with some great friends.Open up the i Chat Preferences, choose Audio/Video, and choose your camera from the drop down list.I’m using an Xbox 360 Camera (s msft) as my test, so that’s why I have a “Camera #2” showing.So long as you have a recent USB webcam (one that’s USB Video Class compliant and uses USB 2.0), it should be recognized under OS X 10.6.6 (the latest version).
