I am trying to do video chat using AIM (on a PC) and I can't seem to get it working. I have tried to use two different webcams, and have had the same result with both. In both instances, the webcam is installed correctly and works fine with Yahoo Messenger, but I can't get it to work with AIM. I'm trying to chat with people using iChat (on a Mac) and it's only compatible with AIM. I went to Settings -> Enhanced IM and selected the proper video. I have tried initiative video chat, and I've had the other person initiate it, and each time it says it can't find the camera. AIM's help was no help in figuring out how to do this. Any suggestions?
