I have a Mac G4 Powerbook and I want to be able to video chat with my PC friend. Is there any way to use the iSight camera with iChat software to do this? I've heard that the iSight/iChat only works with a Mac to Mac Platform.

Can you offer any solutions (the best camera and best software) for this problem? I'm desperate! We will be moving cross country in a couple of weeks.

I have heard that there is a new feature from AOL's AIM which will allow this. Maybe you should check AOL for news of this?

The Logitech QuickCam series has been gaining a bit of reputation recently, and may be worth a look.
