iChat Question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Before today when I was looking at my ichat buddy list, people who I could video conference with had a little green video button next to their name, with what seemed to be two other green video buttons directly behind it cascading back. Other people just had a green button with nothing behind it, now everyone just has one button and none behind it. I hope im making it clear enuf, why dont i see the three buttons ne more?

The "cascading" buttons meant that their version of iChat and/or their CPU were capable of doing MULTIPLE video chats rather than being limited to one-on-one.

Mine still shows some folks with the "cascading" button.
From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, "Look at that!" -...

Some machines do not have the spec to host more than a one-way video chat. What machine are you using? Although this wouldn't explain why it used to work, and isn't now.

I have a 17 inch fully loaded new macbook pro... so it should work and used to work i dont know how to get it back...

Yeah the spec of the machine is not the problem - are they're any settings that could have changed - perhaps your bandwidth limit? I've not got a video camera so haven't had much experience in this area.
