I want to talk with a friend of mine using webcameras. I bought 2 logitech quickcam pro 3000 to try. I have a cable connection while my friend has dialup. Is the video and audio decent or not worth the time. It comes with netmeeting but I would like to use messanger to video conference because we both have xp, how does this program work for you?

Thanks

a dial-up connection will degrade the video like mad. when I used to use dial-up, I could not download AND upload at 4K/sec at the same time. it was one or the other. So, thats about 32kbps of video and audio. translation: not enough. I say just stick with audio if your friend has dialup

Another option for video conferencing is to use CuSeeMe. The free Cornel version of CU works great with the QuickCams. You can download the Cornel version from www.cu-seeme.net. If you have any problems getting it setup there are just go to the message board at www.cu-seeme.net (its the BBS link at the bottom of the page) or there is another message board at www.rocketcharged.com.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
