Yes, Video conferencing between iChat and AIM !

by Volker Weber

This post turned out to be very timely. You can now download iChat AV 2.1 beta from Apple and do video conferencing with PC users that have AOL Instant Messenger 5.5.

Update: Apple says:

iChat AV 2.1 Public Beta supports two way video conferencing with the Windows AIM 5.5 client while maintaining the ability to use the other options with iChat AV clients.

This means, you currently have to have a camera at both ends. This beta does not (yet?) support audio conferencing. Looks like a no-brainer to add that next.
