Video conferencing solution?

Need some help to clarify a video conferencing solution.

If I have IChat Av Public Beta 2.1 and Isight, my family uses Windows XP, webcam and AIM 5.5, and we both have AIM user a/cs, it shouldn't be a problem initiating a videoconference am I right?

Anyone had any success/ problems with this yet? esp since IChat AV is in beta...

Appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

It's hit and miss. Most problems seem to be on the AIM side. If either side has firewalls or routers, you may need to open a bunch of ports to get a connection.
