iChat Question

Posted:
in Genius Bar edited January 2014
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.

    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.

    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.

    Hmm weird, the cascading buttons are back and I can conference again, and again, i didnt touch any settings. Wonder why this happened.
