Chat with folks thousands of miles away in a full-screen personal video conference over any broadband connection. Thanks to the advanced graphics built into Mac OS X, they'll truly look like themselves, instead of strangers made of children's building blocks. And if you use a wide aspect ratio screen, iChat AV uses patented anamorphic resizing techniques so that the video of the person you're chatting with fills the entire screen without distortion. iChat AV also lets you size your video window to whatever size suits your style - from the large default of 352 x 288 pixels to full screen. In fact, iChat AV is so advanced, you can even resize a window during the middle of a conference, as it effortlessly adjusts images on the fly without affecting video and audio quality.

Worked fine for video, audio, and text but screen sharing is currently not working for some users and some have buddies disappearing and the contact list causing crashes. iChat is replaced by Messages in 10.8. When launching a backed up version it says that its out of date and won't open.

Unable to share my screen in ichat, what the client saw was inverted (upside down, not black/white) and shattered.

Really hoping this means that the Lion version of iChat is iMessage-enabled.

Contacts gone. Adding contacts impossible.

Buddy list works fine 11a494a Lion. Wonder if this was an earlier Lion release bug, or an issue of number of buddies. Same iChat 6.0.
Screen sharing not tested since I only have one Lion beta machine.

yahoo messenger in ichat does not seem to work correctly (for me at least). No one including myself appears to be webcam or audio capable on my large buddy list.
