Facetime “The server encountered an error processing registration please try again later” fix on Hackintosh

I have Lion running on my hackintosh (thanks to http://www.tonymacx86.com/) and the usb camera that I have (a Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF Webcam) happens to be supported by my build so I fired up Facetime the other night only to find the following error:

The server encountered an error processing registration please try again later

after the login credential is verified. After reading some posts on the forum I found the solution here and it turns out to be quite easy to fix: just download, install the latest Chimera (current version 1.5.4) from here, followed by a reboot and voila, the error no longer gets in the way. Loving my hackintosh.

      If it’s a real mac, I am sorry I have no answer for it as the problem and the solution only apply to computers built with the Tony Mac Os X way.
