    I've never used iChat, but I imagine there would be something in the settings that allows you to calibrate your video camera - I know that Windows Live Messenger has this.
    There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

    Alot of the time these cameras just seem to come out dark unless there is alot of light in the room around you. If it's even a little dark I know me and my friends cameras come out insanely dark. I'm not sure you can calibrate the camera or anything, but if you can I'd love to know how!

    There's something out there called iGlasses, if I remember correctly, that lets you adjust this stuff.

    MSN doesn't support video for macs BTW.

    I also remember that to get rid of it you need to use the uninstaller that came in the download (or maybe it was the installer file? Can't remember), but it took me a while to figure out!
