Use video instead of webcam
Is there a way I can emulate a video in the place of the webcam?

Like to show a video on gtalk camera?

I presume "gtalk" is shorthand for Google Talk? Tsk tsk the kids today with their slang and their lingo ... :)

iChat can do what you are wanting to do, and is compatible with Google Talk, but to the best of my limited knowledge on this, Google Talk doesn't support webcam through iChat. It supports webcam in Gmail chat only. Consequently, I don't think iChat Theatre is supported by Google Talk.

I could be wrong about this however and would welcome any corrections by anyone who knows more about it than I. I've only ever used iChat Theatre with AIM and MobileMe connections and it is AWESOME.
