Alternative to MSN and Yahoo Messenger?

Does anyone know of an instant messenger that I could download so that myself and my nephew can view each others webcam? We have downloaded yahoo but it is freezing constantly, is very slow and keeps saying that the server is busy. I would use MSN but he's on aol and for some reason he can't log into msn messenger or hotmail. I would be grateful for any ideas. Thanks

just started using this free software called eyebal last week and can't find any faults between myself or any of my contacts,

I Also agree with "socalled" very good for a free conferencing program.

Thanks, I've downloaded the program. Just a quick question: does it work like msn/yahoo in the sense that I will not be transmitting myself live to anyone, just the person on my contact list? For example, can people access my camera who are in the chat rooms or would I have to be in the chat rooms for this to happen. I am just a little concerned because I don't want to use the chat room or be able to be contacted via the chat room, I just want to use it to keep in touch with my family. Thanks
