    HI,

     

    It may pay to state what you are trying to do again.

     

    iChat and FaceTime (or Skype if you must) are communication apps on the Mac.

    Photo Booth is a little app for creating quirky pics or simple snapshots (without the distortions)

     

    Therefore Skype on  PC cannot "Connect" to Photo Booth.

     

    Skype on a PC can only connect to other Skype users. There is a Mac version.

     

    FaceTime = Video chats only (think of it like Capt Kirk calling from the planet but with Video)  IS only Mac to Mac or Mac to iOS device or iOS to iOS device.

    iChat =  full on Text Chats, Audio Only chats, Video Chat, Screen Sharing, Groups Chats/Chatrooms. Using other file as Video feed (iChat Theatre) = in other words a Star Fleet Communication over subspace.

     

    Skype = A third party alternative to iChat  (Similar Audio quality, lesser Video, cost for multiway Video, Less secure but does work to PCs)

    Hi Ralph

     

    Thank you for your reply.  As you can see, i am one of the new converts.

     

    with ref to iChat.  I have a sister in Cyprus on PC and we have used Skype in the past. 

     

    How do we now converse (like Kirk) via iMac to PC?  and more importantly..... where the **** is iChat facility on my beutiful iMac?

     

    Yours, Highly Dim

     

    Mark.

    Hi,

     

    iChat should be in the Applications folder.

    I can also see it when I use the Launch Pad icon in the DOCK 

    (I have also added the iChat icon to the DOCK (Just Drag the app from the Applications Folder and an icon and link is made to the app that stays in the applications folder) )

    iChat "Should" work to AIM on  PC if you get an AIM valid Name  (AIM, @mac.com or MobileMe (@me.com ending ones).

     

    However this has not been as simple as it should be for several years now.

    For some people it just works - as it should.  But for other it can be a major headache.

     

    Skype on the other hand will default to using port below 1024 (below this port in your router will always be open) and will tend to connect successfully.

    There is a Mac version you can download (1-1 Video chats are free).  As you are probably aware several of the features cost.
