    Wife just got a new Dell with a built-in webcam. I know theoretically I can do this between iChat and AIM but I'm having trouble getting that to work even on the local network.

    Is there a better way? Ideally running the same program on both machines?

    I have used Meebo before.

    Log into meebo using AIM account on my mac.

    Other person was on a windows machine, logged into to meebo using AIM also.

    worked perfect.
