Default Webcams, video chat & conferencing? - 01-01-2009, 01:26

One of my New Year's resolutions is to get my family together using video conferencing and chat. I gave two family members webcams as Christmas gifts. My son and I have been testing them using NetMeeting. The problem is that none of us seem to be on the same IM or VOIP systems. In fact I think I'm the only one who is even signed up for an IM.

I need to suggest some single system for everyone to use. I got a pointer to for group video conferencing. Have not signed up yet.

We're playing with NetMeeting because it comes with XP but I just realized that you can't get it for home versions of Vista. I'm a tad reluctant to use Skype, having read the Wikipedia article on the Skype protocol and how Skype uses your bandwidth.
