    Which OS is this Mac running ?


    If running Mountain Lion I take it you have added the AIM name to the Messages > Preferences > Accounts ?


    Have you got the Buddy list on view ?

    Is it the combined one called "Buddies" or a separate one for AIM ?  (You can unlink them in the General section of the Preferences).


    Are you using the Video icon top right of the Messages main window or the green iCons in a  Buddy List ?
