Hi guys

Sorry if this has been discussed/asked before but a search yielded no results. I haven't got many friends yet alone friends with Leopard so I havent been able to try it out for myself yet but curious about iChat Theater in Leopard.

Over at http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304767 it says that you can have "lots" of people in an IM conference, 10 people audio and 4 people video. But how about iChat Theater? http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=iChat/4.0/en/11877.html#top seems to insinuate that you can only have a 1-on-1, ie 2 way presentation. is this correct?

Thanks -Steve

My understanding indicates that it is one-on-one only, but don't take that as fact though.

I think Disko, Dana and Currawong were testing it. (iirc correctly from the podcast) Currawong said all three of them were just dumping any files they could find into ichat and most were working to all of them. So that's 3 way chat ticked off the list. You might need a lot more bandwidth to do more though.

Interesting! I have to find 4 other friends to see if I can break the 4-person video limit in Theater. Who's keen?
