After a few minutes on Face Time the image of the other person freezes and the screen starts flickering and eventually goes green. The sound is fine. When I recall it works fine for a few minutes again and then the same thing happens. What is going wrong? Does anyone else have the same problem?

    I am experiencing this problem too, in exactly the way that you have described here.  It has happened on a few occasions and on calls to different people.  When I use my iPhone 5 on the same Wi-Fi network, it works as normal, so I believe this issue to be isolated to my Mac.


    I would really appreciation an indication as to what might resolve this.

    Hi Braden,


    I also followed the link that you shared with nicholaslond.  I went through the process of troubleshooting the FaceTime issue and it didn't resolve the original issue that I have with FaceTime (as per nicholaslond's description).


    Do you have any other ideas about how to resolve this?


    Kind regards,
