ichat multi conferencing in Software Stuff Posted March 5, 2007 I have a 2 gig G5 Powermac, 1.66 dual core Mini and a 2 gig 17" iMac. All running across a gigabit (locally cabled) ethernet network and all with either additional iSights or built in. All works perfectly and I can carry out device to device video iChats. However if I try to initialise a 3 way conference the quality degrades significantly. I have Quicktime streaming enabled and the network definately runs at gig speeds so I'm at a bit of a loss as to why I'm losing quality. I've tried both over bonjour and aol but exactly the same symptoms. Anyone any ideas? Cheers Haydn I've done a 3-way conference on a local wireless network (802.11G) between 2 Macbooks and a 24" iMac, and it worked flawlessly. I'd suggest opening up Activity Monitor on all three machines during the conference call, and see if any of them are pegging either the CPU or the network really hard. Gigabit is way more than enough, so it sounds like something weird is going on.
