 Sending Live Television Via iChat

"The recent versions of iChat have, of course, brought with them the capability to use a video source (for most people, that would mean an iSight, or a USB webcam using a hack to get it to work in iChat - see my old post about that, or even perhaps a firewire-output home video camera they already own) for video chatting/conferencing. However, if you just so happen to be someone that has purchased an analogue video -> DV (firewire) converter box in the past, such as the Formac Studio, you might be suprised to learn that when it's plugged in it is presented to the Mac (and specifically the iChat application) as a perfectly valid firewire input device. In other, shorter, easier, words: you can use your converter box to stream live video from something"
