iChat/AIM/Skype alternative.

I use my iSight with iChat pretty often, and I relied on it while I was in school to talk to my family since every year my room was inevitably in a location with poor cell phone reception. But for some reason, due to network configurations that I'm not willing to figure out, it doesn't work for everyone. Usually I just talk to these people on Skype, but so far that means no video chat for Mac users.

Well, Evan has found a pretty cool solution: SightSpeed. It works with Mac and Windows, and 1-to-1 video chats are free. We tested it out and it works Mac-to-Mac, and Evan said it works just as well in a Mac-to-PC connection. So if you've been looking for an alternative, there you go.
