Hi cdfreaks members,

Currently i am using Yahoo Messenger for talk & webcam with my parents who live in a different country.

Bandwidth is very less over here, i get a max. of 40kbps(modem) with a huge lag of 600ms. Lots of packet loss & jerk while talking over net.

Is there any better software or service??

Microsoft Sidewinder game chat is pretty cool but i want to use webcam also

Thx in advance.

Bye.

bw is too low to really do realtime video. thats maybe 1 fps. maybe prerecording webbie vids? voicechatting should be fine, though, provided its voice only, no webcam.
