Web Camera set up

  slim 65 11:01 30 Aug 2004

I have family members living in various locations in the UK and overseas. We want to be able to keep in touch and would like to be able to have visual contact by web camera rather than email. 1) Is it difficult to set up? 2) What apart from a camera do I need? 3) Is it secure?
All the pc's run on xp.
Any information and advice please.

Probably the easiest way is through MSN Messenger ( click here ). This allows text, video and audio chat through one program - with a broadband connection it's fantastic!

All the best
