Web Cam software compatible with Win XP and 98

I am running XP Home and my contact is running Win 98. Can anyone recommend good soft ware to run a Web Cam meeting (using original operating systems)? Both computers already have web cams connected.

Have you tried Microsoft netmeeting?

Unfortunately Microsoft Netmeeting directs new clients to Windows Messenger, and therefore Windows XP. Anyone have other suggestions?

Not used this myself but perhaps worth a look. click here I know in the past there was difficulty in getting XP to work with W98 using MSNetmeeting.

I've used Yahoo Messenger - it works very well with webcams and microphones on a one to one (point-to-point) meeting. Very easy to set up too and isn't OS specific.

How did Eyeball com work out? Was it OK. I am in the same situation that you found yourself. Contact has XP and I am on 98SE.

Wondered if anyone else has experience of Eyeball or is there other software to use.
