hey hey, hows everyone doing?? Well, me and my girlfriend have been doing video chat via iChat and wanted to know how do we increase the FPS?? She has a 14" ibook bought last spring with 512 MB RAM. She is at college and tested out the speed and it is insane. I am using a 17" PB with 1.5 GB RAM on a comacst connection. My download speed is no problem and my uploda speeds is around 300-400 kbps. When I look at the connection doctor in iChat it says that we are only using 150-200 kbps of bandwidth. We are much capable of handling more so why am i not taking advantage of the bandwidth available to us? The video looks fine but i know it could be better.

Just wanna know if this is a common thing or is there something else i can do. Thanks

Make sure in iChat preferences you don't have a bandwidth limit set up. Otherwise there is nothing you can do on your computers, it is all an issue of ISP uploading speed.

I get like 350kbps up when I chat with my family back home
