iChat using my camcorder - Mac Networking

I have seen a number of reports that people have successfully used their camcorders and firewire to videoconference using iChat. So far, however, I have not been successful in achieving this although audio conferencing works well but the videoconferenceing button on the Buddy List remains grayed). I'm using a 600Mhz iBook, a firewired Sony TVR350 and an Aiport connection to a NetLink network that works well in every other sense. Does anyone have suggestions as to what I'm missing or need to do? Thanks -- John...

    Default iChat using my camcorder

    I have seen a number of reports that people have successfully used their
    camcorders and firewire to videoconference using iChat. So far,
    however, I have not been successful in achieving this although audio
    conferencing works well but the videoconferenceing button on the Buddy
    List remains grayed).

    I'm using a 600Mhz iBook, a firewired Sony TVR350 and an Aiport
    connection to a NetLink network that works well in every other sense.

    Does anyone have suggestions as to what I'm missing or need to do?

    Thanks

    I'm using a JVC camcorder with iChat. All I do is stick the camcorder into
    record mode (but not actually press the record button), and everything is
    recognised from then on.

    One thing to check is that iMovie hasn't been launched and grabbed the
    camera from you - if so, just quit iMovie and try again.


    Hope this helps,
    Ian

    Apparently it only works with some DV camcorders. Your unit may not be
    compatible.
