MacBook Air :: Cannot See Buddy On IChat - Camera Enabled On Video Tab
Jun 22, 2012
I can't see my buddy on iChat, after he/she accepts my request for video chat. What could be the issue? I just started using iChat for the first time and now have the issue of not being able to see my buddy on video chat. My buddy states the same thing, not being able to see me. I check the "Video" tab on the tool bar, ensuring that all items (microphone, camera, etc.) were enabled, and they all were.
My brother just got a new iMac 24". I have the older 24" white one. I'm trying to iChat with him. We can invite each other, but I can't see him. He can see me, and we can hear each other. Why can't I see him?
I am currently running iChat 1.0.1 and if I add a new person in iChat, they don't show up on the buddy list. Their address card shows up in Address Book and when I am messaged by the person it shows their name given when I first entered them in, but the buddy list does not show them as being online.
I have a hot corner set up on my computer so when I place my mouse in the top left corner, my computer goes to its screensaver. However, when I do this, my ichat status automatically goes to "Away". How can I make it so I stay "Available" so it looks like I'm still online?
unable to initiate video Ichat session. 2 1.xx mhz imacs (powerPC), 10.4.11, both imacs cabled, firewall disabled, all updates on both imacs applied. qtime prefs set to intranet/lan and ichat prefs set to 1mb.
I took pictures of myself with my MacBook Air Facetime camera(right) and with my MacBook Pro iChat camera(left). I've noticed that they are quite similar. However the MacBook Pro pictures seem to be shot at a higher resolution and size. Which one do you guys think is better?
So my issue is that sometimes I just want to watch another person on cam on iChat but when I disable my camera it disables their ability to send me a one way video chat. Is there any way I can turn my cam off and still view theirs? I feel like iChat is forcing me to be on cam.
All the sudden today my ichat video chatting doesn't work just now. It only shows up with the audio chat. What do I do? Here's what it looks like, when I got to settings the green light turns on but no video.
I know how to put the video's directly FROM the camera onto my mac, but how to i transfer them from my windows to my mac? I tried to put them on a disc, but it shows up as .BOG and other video things that doesn't work on my mac. and it will for sure NOT work on my USB, that would also take forever! any ways that would really work well?
Occasionally my friends and I go to tinychat to do a multi-person video chat. Usually when i click "broadcast" there are many video options and I choose the one that has myself on it. It usually says something like "USB camcorder" or something with USB in it. However; the other night I tried to go on, and it wouldn't let me. I noticed that the video options had gone down to about 4, and the one with myself was called "Built-In iSight." I have never had this option before, so I clicked it. the green light next to my camera flicked on and then off. You couldn't see me. Was it something I did? All the video sharing websites do this; however on my photobooth and ichat it works fine...
My video camera (JVC) has a USB port, when I connect the cord from the video camera to the macbook, it doesn't recognize it. I assume you can connect it to the computer this way since it has a USB port on the cam. The cam has firewire (which mac doesn't) and it charges from a dv connection.
When I import a video from my camera to iMovie it lags bad. I have a black MacBook with a 2.4 core 2 duo and 4gb of ram. I know it is not the file on the cam. I am also running iMovie 08. The video I am trying to improt is from a GoPro hero 2 in 1080p. Is that to much for my old Mac? OS 10.7.3
How do I install software for a Sony DCR-SR68 video camera on my 2009 MacBook Pro? The manual that came with the camera says the software cannot be installed on "a Mackintosh", that I should contact Apple.
