Webcam stuff?

Hi all,
this is new to me completely.
If I have a webcam and so does someone else can we see each other on our respective screens and also have a verbal conversation rather than a text or email.
Someone must know how to do this.
Any advice or suggestions wellcome.

Thanks Stuartli, have now got a Skype account,
presumably the person I wish to communicate with must also have one.

Yep..:-)

To correctly configure Skype for sound inputs/outputs see:

You'll find a headset is better than using speakers and a mike in the majority of cases.

Skype's Tools>Options includes the means to setup your webcam.
