    How do I video stream
    I tried using videoconferencing with iChat. The quality was terrible.

    How do I stream to another mac computer using video captured with my embedded iSight camera?

    Is VLC a good software choice. What software should be installed on my mac (the server) and what software should be installed on the other mac (the client)?

    If you want to stream for chatting purposes iChat is fine. Check you iChat preferences. Also keep in mind that the software dynamically sets the quality so you may have had a 'bad' connection. When I've had that problem, I tell the other person I'm disconnecting and trying again. Usually the problem was fixed.

    Skype is another possibility.
