Hi. I've recently acquired a MSI StarCam 370i 1.3Mp webcam and i'm using MSN to video conference with my mates. Although the quality is much better than when i naively tried it with my 56k connection, i kinda expected a much smoother session with my now 2Mbps connection.
Can this be put down to the software i.e. MSN Messenger, or is this just a limitation of my current hardware and/or the current technology.......
If there is better software available, can someone recommend to me the best freeware available that does the job well?

You connection speed for a webcam session is not the download speed, but the upload speed. If you think about it, each cam has to upload at the much slower upload speed - so your download speed is irrelevant.
