    What you need to do is go into add remove programmes (xp) or remove program and files (vista) find ichat, then click remove, however this does not always remove the full programme, then go to C:\Program Files and find the file called ichat or close to this, if you cant find it in this folder do a search via the start menu and then delete the file from there.

    Then you can reinstall, hope that this helps

My built in camera will not work with skype. i tried to do a video call with a friend but the camera will not turn on when i pressed the video call button.


The only thing that I can think of is that you also have something else open that is using the camera. Does the camera show up in Photo Booth or ichat? Do you have ichat open at the same time as Skype. Make sure you close ichat, photobooth, and Skype (and anything else that uses a camera) and then re-open only Skype. If you have something else open that uses the camera when you open Skype, Skype will be unable to use the camera.

Hi, How do i find out if i can do a video call on my mac book air. and how do i test it to see if it works. I'm in australia


You will be able to do a video call through Skype, iChat (AIM), FaceTime, and even GMail. Give some of those applications and you will see that your video calling works correctly.

I have a camera on my macbook pro and I need to know how to use it to skype


The camera will turn on automatically when necessary. For example, in iChat, it will turn on automatically when you click the video camera icon next to someone's name in your buddy list, it will turn on automatically.

Likewise in Skype, simply click the video camera icon next to someone's name in your buddy list and it will initiate a video chat.

I cant hear my buddies when using ichat but they can hear me perfectly and clearly.. Also I cant get sound when using quicktime especially with .avi files.


This is easy..
Your buddies need to raise their microphone volume, which may be muted. System preferences, sound, look for the microphone slider and raise it to full.
Quicktime doesn't like AVI's by default, and even when it does work, it usually won't play the sound. There are two solutions.
1. download 'flip4mac' which is a quicktime plugin for playing AVIs (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/wmcomponents.mspx)
2. Download VLC, which plays everything, and has the excellent feature of raising the volume to 300% (great for crappy laptop speakers). http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html

URGENT MY ICHAT VIDEO CHAT IS NOT WORKING


If you are using VMware Fusion at the same time that you get the problem then it is Fusion. Check by shutting down Fusion then trying the iChat. If it works fine then it's definitely Fusion that is interrupting it.

With internet sharing off as you describe the next thing is to make sure that it is also not sharing the iSight itself. When fusion is running but not windows itself, check the configuration of your windows bootable in Fusion. (You'll have to excuss me a bit as I havn't used Fusion for a bit since switching over to Parallels) Check to see if the iSight is listed among the USB devices.

If it's not there load up windows and check which devices are connected there from the main Fusion Menu or the little icons on the Fusion Status bar. If it's not, double check by right clicking on MyComputer and choosing properties then go to Device Manager and then looking in there for any USB camera devices. If it is, right click and disable it.

See if any of that helps.

All the best
