video iChat difficulties

Recommended Posts

I have not been able to set up video iChat with daughter's Intel Macbook Pro. Some information:

 

  • I have a relatively new iMac (2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Dual).
  • Both computers are here in my home now, but my daughter will be going back to college soon.
  • Both macs are up-to-date in all posted mac software and OS (10.5.4).
  • Since she claims to have no problems with her video chats with friends, I thought that if I simply set up my accounts and preferences to be the same as daughter's, then I'd have no difficulties.

Anyone out there have some ideas on what to do?

Are there any sort of error messages that come up, or are you just not getting any picture, can you do audio chats?

Yes, see this site that I prepared for your perusal, that provides the details...

 

"There was a communication error during your chat".... no, ya think?

Hmm, that's interesting. I'm sorry, I really have no idea what is going on. Is it just conferencing with her that causes trouble, or is it anyone?

It appears to be only me. She's headed off to college, again, soon... so I'm motivated to fix it quick.
