Windows Messenger

I currently use Windows Messenger to keep in touch with family in Australia

I have recently bought a webcam to try out web conferencing with them, however in Windows Messenger the picture is very small, a couple of inches each way, and not adjustable.

Does anyone know of any good video conferencing software where the picture is bigger and adjustable? I would be grateful for assistance.

Hello Golfer Boy,

Yahoo messenger is head and shoulders above the rest for webcam conferencing. It is easy to use and takes no time to set up and you can change your picture settings. Give it a go.


click here (I THINK!)...or just search for it in a search engine.

Thanks for the info Vaughan007, I have one further question. Do you need to sign up to anything with Yahoo to use this. I already have 3 email addresses so don't want to have to have another one to use Yahoo Messenger.

Can I use it with my existing email accounts?

Thanks for your help so far.

You do need to sign up, but you can keep an existing email account to use with yahoo. Have fun!
