Use either, or as well, MSN Messenger and or the free Skype. I use a Logitech Pro 4000 which gives good video but be aware that even the best will have a stuttered look. Still excellent for free to the US though.

...to pay for video-link software. For more than a year now, I've had a lengthy, regular Sunday-evening chat with my son and his family in W. Canada. Initially we used MSN but after some annoying video and audio quality problems we tried Logitech VideoCall and ended up paying for it( about £40 per year) largely because of its very nice intuitive user-interface. Recently, however, we thought we'd try MSN once again — because it's free — and we now reckon that it performs better than the Logitech product.

VideoCall's superior user-interface alone isn't worth £40 a year IMO. We both use Logitech QuickCam Zoom webcams by the way. They're cheap and entirely adequate.

I'd also recommend the use of headsets at each end — we had severe feedback-echo problems when we used our loudspeakers.

Hope this helps a bit.
