I have the same issue with my 27" imac with all the correct software and have not been able to find a solution.

Thanks for sharing. Let me know if you find a solution. This one's really bugging me, but apparently it isn't happening to too many people.

will do. I tried facetime out a few months ago and am just revisiting the problem thinking that with time and an update it would be solved. Sadly it hasn't. My microphone is working correctly but its as if sound is not being sent through the facetime application.

Thought I'd give a quick update on this issue ... it appears to be network/Internet related. I'm at my parents' home right now, and when I FaceTime using my iPhone 4 and their 21" iMac, it works perfectly. Sound comes through good 'n clean. So something is getting lost when I try it when I'm home in LA and they're here in the Chicago area. Not sure what exactly ... but it seems to be a network/Internet thing. Not that this issue isn't necessarily under Apple's jurisdiction...
Glad to have a little bit more info on the issue.

No solution, just posting that I have the same issue.
Sisters iMac in Wisconsin, my iPhone4 in Los Angeles..
Whats strange about it is, when she calls from her iMac, I get her sound for about a minute, and then it goes dead (though she can always hear me.) If she calls back, still no sound. It resolves itself a day later, but then again sound will cut out after about a minute.
However, if she facetimes me from her iPod touch, it works fine. Sound has never cut out when she uses that.
Like I said, no ideas, just sharing my situation. Hopefully Apple has noticed this bug and is working to fix it.

This sounds like something similar to https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3388112?start=105&tstart=0.
The problem was probably on the Mac side. Try ask your parents turning down the speak volume (System Preferences->Sound->Output->Output Volume) or the microphone gain (System Preferences->Sound->Input->Input Volume).
