Hi,

I'm very new to the webcam concept and all my friends are PC losers, so I'm wondering if getting isight would do me any good. I know they claim to be compatible with AOL, but what about Yahoo or Microsoft?

Also, are there common webcam forums where people hang out other than www.myisight.com? I don't want to buy it and have no one to use it with...

And finally, I'm curious about the frame rate. On DSL, can you really expect to get at least a steady 15-20fps video?

The iSight probably doesn't work with PC's. The iSight is designed to work with iChat - which runs off the AOL servers. It does not work with MSN Messenger (only PC's using MSN 6.0 support video conferencing). The only way iSight works is with iChat under Mac OS X 10.2.x or better. The normal AOL client also doesn't allow video-conferecing I don't believe, therefore iChat is required for video use.
