    I dont think the video option in Messenger is a plug-in, it is part of the program. I dont think that there is any way you can make messenger use netmeeting. My understanding is that the other person doesn't have to be using XP to see your vid with Messenger but they do have to have the latest version of Messenger. Besides, Netmeeting is one of the worst video conferencing programs.
