I have been experimenting with skype video, both mac to mac and mac to PC.

I get the video working fine, but the sound is shocking. Terrible feedback. I looked a the skype help functions and it said to turn on some kind of gain function in the audio preferences,which must only be present in the windows version, as it isn't there in the mac version.

I do not want to use headphones and a mic, as the purpose of video conferencing for us is to have the kids able to talk to their cousins in america, or their grandparents, as a group.

I was hoping to use skype as I had heard great things about it, but frankly, for mac it seems that iChat is better. The cousins will have to use AOL. Anyone know if ichat is compatible with AIM 6.0?

if you don't want a headset, use a USB Desktop microphone which you can move further away from your speakers...
