    hi,

     

    MacBook Air

    FaceTime video chat.

     

    Does the whole computer freeze or just FaceTime ?

    Hi Nobimon,

     

    Thanks for that I had missed that.

     

    FaceTime is an iOS video app for 1-1 contact that has been "transferred" to the Mac OS.

    A Beta version was available for Snow Leopard  and it then came in Lion and is present in Mountain Lion.

     

    Facebook run a  Jabber server for their "chat" option.

    There is a setting, apparently, on people's Facebook Settings to Enable it.

     

    The ID can then be used in iChat or Messages.

    Most of what I had read on this suggested it was Text only.

     

    It is possible that in a web Browser they may use Flash to do Video Chats

    Google Used to then created their Own Video Plug-in that strangely causes issues with a Flash Plug-in being used at the same time.

    Google's plug-in uses the Jingle protocol to connect Video chats.
