    I need input on the best web cam program. I am now away from my family and want to use web cam instead of cell phones. Not sure which is the best. All input is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Skype seems to work for a lot of people.

    I think yahoo and google (and possibly facebook) has a video chat offering as well.


    Maybe give them a whirl and see what interface you prefer.

    We Skype from Tucson AZ to Reno NV all the time with our kids and grandkids.

    Great way to beat the Long Distance charges, and the camera works very well!

    I am using the Logitech Pro 9000 most often.

    Good Luck! Yer gonna have fun with this.... :supergrin:

    Yeah, probably the best is Skype. I use it for business meetings and to talk to someone I know in Denmark. Works surprisingly well, even on a slow (1.5mbps) dsl connection.

    Hey Toyman - They *sting* you for international fees of any sort?

    Just being nosey - I imagine they should NOT be able to, but... sometimes asking reveals some other stuff... HuH!

    TIA
