I have a webcam and would like to use my broad band connection to see and chat with my grandchildren over the net.I am on BT broadband they are on Aol, I have heard about MSN messenger is this free to use?(no Call charges)
and can I ensure that no-one else muscles in on our connection ? Help and suggestions of other software appreciated.

MSN is now very good most of the time and I use it most nights to talk to a fried. Yahoo messenger and Skype are also good. No one else should be able to muscle in

MSN Messenger click here

No call charges. You each sign in using a .net passport so nobody else can 'muscle in'.

i have msn 7.5 which does not support voice and cam together so i use yahoo messenger for voice and msn messenger for pic.

I am using MSN messenger 7.5 and can use video with audio or audio alone.

You can also use Spontania4IM which is intended to be used with Skype and similar utilities:
