Chapter 18. Using iChat AV

iChat AV enables you to hold text-based conversations with friends and family in real time—or, with the proper equipment, to have audio or videoconferences.

To make full use of iChat, you need an AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) account, a Mac username, or a Jabber server account. You can sign up for a free AIM account at www.aim.com or a free .Mac username at www.mac.com, which comes with a 60-day trial of .Mac. (After the .Mac trial expires, the username is still usable for iChat.) Jabber is used to set up private instant messaging servers within corporate or secure environments. For more information on Jabber, visit www.jabber.org/.
