    so my school gives everyone macbooks and they have ichat unblocked but u cant video chat at all or share screens. when u hit someones video camera it pops up that u sent them a request to video chat but then the person will never recieve it. also on a side note i can video chat with non mac users. my friend has a dell with a webcam i can vid chat with but i cant video chat with other macs. so is there a way i can change the settings or something so that i can video chat with other mac users? my school has ALOT of blocks so idk if its possible but i wasnt sure. im using 10.5.4. also i went to video>connection doctor>capabilities and they all have a green check mark next to each category

    I don't think so, they let the students USE them.
    If they could keep them, then they could break the restrictions without anyone knowing.

    nope public. we were one of the first high schools to actually give all our students laptops. we first got these crappy sony vios and then we switched to macs. last year they didnt block video chat and it was so much fun and now i miss it lol.

    i dont think if i made another ichat account it would work, and if ur talkign about a new account of the computer then that wouldnt work cause its blocked
