I have just bought three Logitech webcams to help keep in touch with our children and their families using speech and live instant video. Can anyone tell me which is the best Messenger service to use for this - Windows, MSN, Yahoo or whatever? I understand that Yahoo do not allow live chat anymore?
I use MSN messenger with a Logitech webcam.It works perfectly now I have a new computer,but when I had a Igb processor I found the speech was jerky and could be intermittent.It may not have been the processor at fault,could have been something else.I am on 1mb broadband.Worth a thought.
bruno This point is important. I should have added in my contribution that when I used it on dial up the limited bandwidth made speech and video difficult if used at the same time. That applies to both ends of the connection. I am now on 512kbs broadband (sad) but it is good enough, anything faster willl simply improve the connection.
If your Broadband service is delviered using BT ADSL the UPStream speed (i.e. out of your house maxes at 256kbps, so getting faster broadband makes no difference as you can only send at that speed, and if your friends are on BT Broadband they can also only send at 256kbps. Other broadband suppliers amy go faster UPStream, but most people don't notice.
