My camera works perfectly fine, but, in iChat, I am not able to do video chat. When I go to Preferences - Audio/Video, I can see myself, but I am not able to do video chat.
Is the other party involved in the video chat on a Mac that has iChat AV?

Yes, i have had my computer since March 2008, and I was always able to do video chat with other mac users with Ichat, and all of a sudden im not able to. i have no altered anything, and the camera works just fine.

We did a screen sharing session and deleted the iChat preferences, restarted iChat. It worked!
