    Is iSight quality better in iChat than AIM?
    I tested out my new iSight web cam with a couple people tonight, using iChat and my AIM account. The video came out somewhat blurry. Does using a dedicated iChat account improve quality?

    I don't think so, as long as you are using iChat...

    Are all the parties using 10.4? If not you won't see the H.264 goodness, but the slightly less crisp looking H.263 video compression...

    A lot of it also depends on your processor speed, what else you're doing on your computer at the time, and the speed of your internet connection.

    I also find that the room needs to have an abundant light source.

    Well my preview window looks great, but they get somewhat blurry reception on their end and I get somewhat blurry reception from them on my end (through AIM on iChat).
