i just successfully communicated via the internet with different people in the states and europe using ichat av.
found them on www.ichatters.com
the experience was surreal, just like the first time using airport.
in the beginning i was a bit hesitant, as the information available for setup was confusing cause i am using older gear. i worry about compatibility, but when i saw and hear the other party 'live' all the setup frustrations were gone!
feels like on board the 'enterprise'.
going full screen on my 20" cinema looks fine, some pixelating in the video but acceptable.
my setup includes:
G4-450 cube running panther, sony PC-1 dv camera, connecting with graphite ABS (fw 3.8.4). my DSL bandwidth averages <1Mps.

people i came across are all on mac using ichat av. i talked to a few 'strangers' from all over the world, so far my impression is very positive, very friendly and nice to talk to.
only thing is the users are over whelmingly male.
the conversation is one stream at a time, not conference, but there are choices under different interest and geographical areas to choose from. i strongly suggest any anybody who got ichat av setup to visit this site to test your gear.

I read somewhere that females get deluged with chat requests on these ichat referral sites.

I wonder if there's any ichat porn yet?
