    yes you can video chat w her, but not through iChat - you'll have to download Yahoo messenger or some other client. but i've heard teh framerate's suck on yahoo messenger. but search around you should be able to figure out how to do it. i know its possible.

    mind you, i tried it with my friend and we both had iChat. I haven't real world tested this yet with an actual AIM client, but we both used our aim names over ichat.

    That's not what he was asking. Reread post #1.

    What you are doing isn't anything special. It's the whole point in iChat.
