    Macbook Pro Webcam Problems!!! Please Help!!!
    Need Help!! Hi, I have a brandnew Macbook Pro, and so far have had no troubles with it. The only trouble I have is with the Webcam. The webcam works perfectly with other Macbook users, and an external webcam. But when I try to video chat with some of my friends that have Webcams built into their Windows laptops, they cannot see my. I have tried it with two friends, and both of them have HPs. Whenever I video chat with them, I can see and hear them perfectly, but they cannot see me, but they can hear me. They say that they just see a black screen, which is where my face should be. I tried searching other forums and sites, but found nothing. If anyone could help me figure out why they cannot see me, but I can see them, it would be much appreciated. Please Help!!Thank You very much.

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    What program are you using for video chat? Some work better than others.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I am using iChat. The one that comes standard with Macbooks. Should I try using AIM instead?

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    I'd try AIM, I've tried AIMs video chat and it works, but skype was better cross-platform. I haven't tried iChat with AIM though.
