Re: Webcam



Oh ?
Please elaborate.
My sister does not have WLM, only WM. But her laptop comes with built-in webcam. So, what should I do and what does she have to do ? She is using Vista Home premium, WM.

Not sure which newsgroup to post this :
I intend to install a webcam on my laptop in order to keep in touch with my sister far away.
What do I need to know ? Do I have to activate another program i.e. messenger ?
When I installed my WLM, I did not install Messenger and other related programs.
I need to know enough to tell my sister who knows even less.
Thank you.

You can always use Skype. It's a freebie. I've used it to connect to my brother in NC, my step-kids in NH and MA, and my nephew in TX. Works pretty well.

Install and use Microsoft Windows Live Messenger with your webcam. Have your sister install the same program.

You don't have to install any software that came with the webcam for video communication.
