Since 2 weeks, I have met some problems with FaceTime on my iMac.The video call starts and freezes after 1 seconds.I can see the person that I call but she can't see me.†I've tried many things : reboot the iMaccheck the settings of my ISP routerdo all the updates...†Then I remembered that I used 2 weeks ago (and for the first time) a BT Headset on my iMac.And then, each time I've launched Facetime, I had a popup error saying that my Headset is not visible ...I thaught it was nothing bad and each time I clicked it on "OK".So I tried to delete the Headset for the BT preferences and then Facetime worked again.
My facetime was working fine until recently it asked for a login and this time when I did login with my Apple id, it prompted for email verification. However it is not able to complete the verification and keeps giving the following error message : Could not verify the email address. Please check your network connection and try again.
I have checked the support forums and they all point towards preferences. Problem is that the preferences option for face time is grayed out and I am not able to use them.¬†

I have had my black macbook for a little over 2 years it is a c2d 2.16. It has ran flawlessly until recently it has been freezing during video playback. Mostly during online streaming like hulu or netflix. The screen usually gets these little red or green dots all over it when it happens. A couple times the the sound continued but usually it stops. What is going on? It has happened almost every day for a couple weeks now. I am running the latest version of OSX
Have noticed of recent that when i am watching movies on my laptop (avi's) after about 30 min the movie will freeze. at first i thought it was the file but trying files that i have known previously to work i have found that they also freeze now.
i have also noticed that when trying to upload files via FTP they will freeze half way and timeout.
i have run disk verify, and it has come back fine have tested the RAM using techtool pro and that also came back fine.
I recently (3 days of writing this) was playing World of Warcraft and my Mac completely froze. The only way to escape this is by turning the computer on and off. Ever since, any time I open a video game application, within a few seconds my Mac will completely freeze. On occasion my screen will freeze but my mouse will work, albeit in reverse (left is right, up is down, etc.) and will move incredibly fast. No other applications are affected in such a manner and since this is only occuring during graphics intense video games, I suspect my graphics card is causing this.
I purchased a new 27 inch 2.8 imac 2 months ago I'm having problems with the computer/screen going black (sometimes grey with vertical lines) and freezing.
This happens frequently when I'm playing World of Warcraft but has recently started to happen when I'm watching youtube videos in full screen. (Do you think its the graphics card?) I originally ran WOW in bootcamp but I had this problem in Windows as well. The only thing I can do when this happens is force the computer off. This happened so often that something got damaged and I had to reinstall OSX. Since this incident I have not reinstalled Windows via bootcamp.
I've been working on some making some video clips that are ipod commericals (to eventually do the whole thing on imovie) but after 4-5 videos being finished, I work on the next one and right in the middle of rendering, it just freezes and doesn't do anything else, or when I try to just export it it does that, but before it works fine. I tried removing a couple extra effects I aded, and it still does it.
I am having problems with video and high content webpages freezing.I am also getting pixel lines across my webpages.¬† Maybe two or three lines.¬†I was running os 10.4 but I just up graded to 10.6 the other day.¬†I have 2GB of RAM.
I may be using the incorrect terminology, but videos like u-tube, are very slow, to the point of just sitting there, frozen, while it "loads" for a minute or two, then runs for a couple of seconds, then stops to load again, sometimes for several minutes.
I have the small macbook, with SL, 2.4 GHz, 2 GB, 667 MHz. I know this is a standard problem, but there must be something I can do to make it better. I thought maybe the SL would help, but no.
My FireFox is constantly "hiccupping" with video playback - for instance, YouTube videos. The video freezes up every 10 seconds or so for about 2-3 seconds as the audio continues, then the video unfreezes. Even as I type this, things I'm entering in this box aren't showing up for a second or two.
Additionally, I have certain Flash videos that won't play. I have the newest Flash player and Adobe Flash's website test says my Flash Player is working.
I don't have any of these problems in Safari, but I like FireFox a lot more (Add-ins, NORMALLY a faster browser, better GUI, etc.).
I've tried reinstalling Flash and disabling Adblock (I hear it's the cause for stuff a lot of times) but nothing has worked.
I wonder if with regards to accessing FaceTime on multiple devices. We have a number of Mac products (iPad, iPhones and Mac Book Pro) at our house, all connected to one wireless network. Some of these devices can log into FaceTime but others cannot (notably the MacBook pro), using the same Apple ID details.¬†The error message I get is that I should check my network connection. However, the connection is fine, and other devices have no problems with connecting to Facetime.
I just saw a T-Mobile commercial where they practically dissed AT&T, but also dissed apple because they specifically mention the iPhone 4 not being able to make facetime calls without WiFi. All of these IPhone impersonators are making me sick! Does anybody know when this feature will be upgraded so I can shut all these apple haters up?
Me and my friend are trying to start a facetime chat. We are both on our our computers and have wifi.In addittion we both are calling using are emails so we know thats not the issue.I've tried calling her when shes online and it tells me she is unavailable.She tries calling me minutes later and it tells her that I am unavailable
You can now download a FaceTime app for your Mac and make video calls to iOS devices.http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/20/f...#disqus_thread Wish they hadn't left PC users out in the cold. Hoping for a skype update soon!
I had installed the FaceTime app in my MBP (OS X 10.6.8) sometime back. But the mic isn't working with the FaceTime app. i am able to see and hear what others speak but the person on the other end is not able to hear me.¬†
Interested in Speech Pathologists who use facetime for speech therapy.¬† In particular, I am interested in communication issues with people with mental retardation who can access facetime, but have intelligibility issues.¬†
