iChat Icon

These iChatAV (Version 2) pages are coloured Green and have the iChat 2 icon on them that was in use at the time, so you know where you are. The icon differs from Version 1 by having the camera logo added.

8[9] 08 iChat 2 Video Chat Oct 2008

This is the iChat 2 Video Chat window. (well actually it is an iChat 4 pic which has the Effects Button but otherwise it looks the same. The fourth icon, to the right, is because I run a Add-On and this button controls it's pop out drawer).

A successful connection will open out to this view - although this one is somewhat confusing as it is with myself on two computers at the same desk.

Video Chat

Your Preview will shrink to become the Picture-in-Picture and you will see your Buddy.

The Pic-in-Pic can be placed in any corner. It can be resized from about a 1/16th of the Chat window size (as in this pic to the left), to as big as the main picture shows it , at 1/4 of the window.

The Controls to Go Full Screen are in the Bar at the bottom of the main chat. They move to the Picture-in-Picture when you are in Full Screen Mode.
