    Default Facetime - can you change ringtone

    Hi all

    Just got my first iPod for Xmas and trying out Facetime between the iPod and the iMac. Can you change the ringtone in Facetime on the iMac to something else???

    I have looked in Facetime>preferences and also the Sounds menu in System Prefs on the iMac, but can't see any way of doing it.
    Cheers

    I think you'll have to at least wait for the full release.

    Remember it's currently at version 0.9

    Ahh of course!

    Forgot it was still a beta.

    I see Skype has now released video calling for iPod Touch/iPhone. I tried that out yesterday and it seemed to be pretty reasonable for a free tool

    Oops! Got this totally wrong. We use FaceTime. He was looking at using Skype but it didn't work out.

    Post previously said - (Yes it does seem pretty good. A friend calls me on his latest iPod Touch to my MBP - works well.)

    You can technically change it. If you go into the app by using 'Show Package Contents' there is a file called "vc~ringing.aif" that is the ringtone. You can technically replace this with any other AIFF-encoded audio file; which can be done with iTunes or Audacity.
