    Compatible Webcam for Mac Mini
    I just ordered a Mac Mini and would like to know what is a good webcam for this. My daughter is getting a macbook for graduation, and I want to be able to chat with her while she's away at school. Any help is appreciate.

    The Xbox Live Vision cam works great with Macs, without any need to even install drivers. My parents bought one a couple months ago at the suggestion of a friend and hooked it up to my dad's PowerBook and did a little video chat with me. If you look around you should be able to find it for $30 or so. I'm thinking of getting one too since it's so cheap and I have an Xbox 360 as well, so I'd be able to use it on my computer and my Xbox.

    There are several other alternatives. First of all, check out:

    Ecamm Network: iUSBCam - Make Your Webcam Work with iChat

    This is a driver which says that it will allow use of most USB webcams with iChat.

    Then there is a Mac compatible webcam, a cheaper alternate to iSight:

    Ecamm Network: iMage Webcam - Mac Compatible Webcam for iChat, Skype and more

    Finally, maccam (another driver for USB webcams with Macs):

    macam : USB webcam support for Mac OS X

    Good luck!
