Poor performance of facetime on macbook air while it works fine with other devices

Hi all,
I am experiencing poor performance when using facetime with my macbook air (image is poor and voice keeps breaking) while facetime works absolutely fine with my iphone or ipad. Skype works fie with the macbook as well. I have fiber optic connection with plenty of bandwidth. Any ideas?

Reboot and try again.

    Use the trackpad to scroll, thats what it was designed for. The scroll bars automatically disappear when not being used and will appear if you scroll up or down using the trackpad.
    This is a user-to-user forum and most people will post on here if they have problems. You very rarely get people posting to say there update went smooth. The fact is the vast majority of Mountain Lion users will not be experiencing any major problems with the OS, or maybe with apps which are not compatible, but thats hardly Apple's fault if developers don't update their apps.

  • Facetime between MacBook Air and iPad2 worked only one time, then hasn't worked since..

    My husband and I are trying to use Facetime since we are living apart this summer.  It worked once before I left town, but hasn't worked since then.
    I have a MacBook Air, OSX 10.6.7
    He has an iPad 2
    Both have Facetime set up.  We share the apple Id between the machines, but the apple id has been deleted as a contact email from the iPad. 
    The Air can call the iPad; but when my husband tried to accept the call, it just keeps saying "connecting" or something like this.  The call doesn't go thru.
    The iPad cannot seem to reach the Air (I don't see that the iPad has called me).
    I am often using a university wifi system, so i thought firewalling might be a problem, but my roommate doesn't have an issue with it for her facetime (she is using an iPad).
    Any ideas?

    Update:  Above roommate just tried Facetime with me (she has an iPad).  The exact same thing happened as with my husband...my call to her showed on her iPad but the call didn't connect.  Her call to me didn't even show up on my machine.  So, it appears to be an issue with my MacBook Air...

  • Ipod classic (photo) and windows version not recognized by itunes on my macbook air. Iphone works fine and previously it also worked out with the Ipod. If someone has an answer that would be great. thanks

    itunes on my mac does not any longer show my ipod classic (photo, window formated). It worked before and itunes with iphone just works fine. Any clue? Thanks.

    Sorry to jump the gun, but did you connect the iPod via USB Hub on the MB Air?
    If plug it into the wrong USB port, which is shared like using a USB Hub, I would suggest connecting the iPod directly to the MB Air and not via USB Hub.
    But if you connect directly, have the iPod ever connect to iTunes, without problems, on this MB Air?
    You got an old 4G iPod photo, based on iPod Software version 1.2.1
    I mean downgrade to the iTunes version, that was working, with your iPod, but try the right USB port first before downgrading iTunes, with earlier version download here.

  • I cannot log into my iMessage account from my macbook pro,while i could login from other devices. What could be the issue?

    i cannot log into my iMessage account from my macbook pro. but is able to login from other devices. I had to replace my logic board an year ago, could this create a problem?

    From the menu bar, select
     ▹ About This Mac
    Below the "OS X" legend in the window that opens, the OS version appears. Click the version line twice to display the serial number. If the number is missing or invalid according to this web form, take the machine to an Apple Store or other authorized service center to have the problem corrected.

  • My wife has just had a new iPad and while Wifi works fine with it at home, at work it will not connect to the Wifi despite the correct password being entered. The 'waiting wheel' simply goes round and round next to the Wifi network attempting connection.

    My wife has just had a new iPad and while the Wifi works fine at home, at work she is unable to connect after entering the correct password etc. The 'waiting wheel' simply spins next to the network attempting to connect. The iPad version is 5.1.1 and not the IOS 6 which seems to be problematic on the Wifi front. To add to the mystery my own iPad connects fine to my wife's place of work. Is it possible to take the manual settings from mine and connect that way? Or any other suggestions?

    When your device is trying to connect to the work Wi-Fi network, go to Settings > Wi-Fi > then tap on the name of the Netowrk that she is having trouble with. Then tap on forget this network. Let the device attempt to connect again and make absolutely sure she is trying to connect to the work network and not a nearby network, then make absolutely sure the password is entered correctly.

  • My FaceTime Camera of my MacBook Air doesn't work in Skype.

    My FaceTime Camera of my MacBook Air doesn't work in Skype. I try to make a videocall but my camera doesn't work.

    Be sure to check PHOTOBOOTH and FACETIME in more than one user account.  However, don't use the "Guest" account for testing.  If your Mac only has one account, create a new user account for testing.
    • If Apple's http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2090
       suggestions do not help you, (the "reset" suggested there
       often restores normal function,) continue with the following.
    • Use your Mac's Disk Utility to repair permissions and then
       download and apply the latest Combo Update, for your Mac OS,
       the current one is at: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1484
    • Repair permissions again immediately following the system restart
       that completes the Combo update.
    Properly applying the Combo version of updates can sometimes correct software problems, but, if your trouble is caused by a hardware problem, there are no user serviceable parts of iSight.  For hardware help, contact an Apple-Authorized Service Provider for service.
    The same Troubleshooting help for built-in iSight works for FaceTime (and FaceTime HD) cameras, too.
    If your camera works with Apple apps in every user account you test, search or post for help in Skype's dedicated forum.  The Skype users who post there may have already know the solution for your particular problem.

  • My start up disc is full i have a macbook air, i back everuthing up with time capsule and  have movies all my music libraries and photos onto that too so as i have free space, but my max still says my startup disc is full with "other"

    my start up disc is full i have a macbook air, i back everuthing up with time capsule and  have movies all my music libraries and photos onto that too so as i have free space, but my max still says my startup disc is full with "other"

    First, empty the Trash if you haven't already done so. Then reboot. That will temporarily free up some space.
    According to Apple documentation, you need at least 9 GB of available space on the startup volume (as shown in the Finder Info window) for normal operation. You also need enough space left over to allow for growth of your data. There is little or no performance advantage to having more available space than the minimum Apple recommends. Available storage space that you'll never use is wasted space.
    If you're using Time Machine to back up a portable Mac, some of the available space will be used to make local snapshots, which are backup copies of files you've recently deleted. The space occupied by local snapshots is reported as available by the Finder, and should be considered as such. In the Storage display of System Information, local snapshots are shown as "Backups." The snapshots are automatically deleted when they expire or when free space falls below a certain level. You ordinarily don't need to, and should not, delete local snapshots yourself.
    To locate large files, you can use Spotlight as described here. That method may not find large folders that contain a lot of small files.
    You can also use a tool such as OmniDiskSweeper (ODS) to explore your volume and find out what's taking up the space. You can delete files with it, but don't do that unless you're sure that you know what you're deleting and that all data is safely backed up. That means you have multiple backups, not just one.
    Proceed further only if the problem hasn't been solved.
    ODS can't see the whole filesystem when you run it just by double-clicking; it only sees files that you have permission to read. To see everything, you have to run it as root.
    Back up all data now.
    Install ODS in the Applications folder as usual.
    Triple-click the line of text below to select it, then copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C):sudo /Applications/OmniDiskSweeper.app/Contents/MacOS/OmniDiskSweeper
    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Paste into the Terminal window (command-V). You'll be prompted for your login password, which won't be displayed when you type it. You may get a one-time warning not to screw up. If you see a message that your username "is not in the sudoers file," then you're not logged in as an administrator.
    I don't recommend that you make a habit of doing this. Don't delete anything while running ODS as root. If something needs to be deleted, make sure you know what it is and how it got there, and then delete it by other, safer, means.
    When you're done with ODS, quit it and also quit Terminal.

  • Did macbook air mid 2009 running slow with mountain lion?

    did macbook air mid 2009 running slow with mountain lion?

    Yours is the first computer I've heard about on these forums that is attempting to run Mavericks with only 2GB of RAM.
    Indeed that is acceptable per the Mavericks requirements:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5842
    ... but as you may know, Apple has not sold computers with as little as 2GB RAM for quite a while.
    I suggest therefore you make sure you remove any applications that may be overtaxing your machine.  Examples are browsers other than Safari, Mac cleaning products (such as Mac Keeper), or any other non-Apple app that has some startup process running (such as Outlook).

  • Macbook air either not working or working very very slowly on wireless

    At home I have 2 laptops: a macbook air and a compaq presario v6000. The macbook air is either working very slowly with the eircom broadband, or else not working at all. The presario works at a good speed and  is consistent. The air is fine on all other networks. Strangely, download speeds are normal nbut nothin else is normal.
    I'm running OS X if that matters

    Power off the router. Wait awhile. Power it back on. Wait until all the lights are lit up properly.
    It will take a while.
    Restart the computer.
    Start up in Safe Mode
