video conferencing 2

I had some useful replies to a query recently - I'm on a PC, my son on a Mac. We have the cameras working - AIM at my end and iChat in Oz. problem is the video window on AIM is minute and I can't find a way to enlarge it. Is there a way. If not, is there a cheap conferencing program that would be better. Thanks

Hi. Try Skype (for free) From click here
which is the audio bit and Festoon from click here which is the video add on.

Hello EJ. Looks interesting, but do you know whether this package installed on my PC will be compatible with iChat on my son's Mac?

EJ. Just spotted a problem. Skype only works with another Skype. Needs Festoon which doesn't work on Mac.

Not sure about the Mac. I have only used it on PC's with Win XP.
