    Hello, I am using Skype.com software to talk to my family in different parts of the world. Skype software allows me to hold a conference call with two family members or more, but does not allow me to use the webcam to see more than one family member at a time. Is there any software that can allow me to do this? I was wondering if Yahoo messenger or other free software. It also has to be Mac compatible. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    ooVoo allows up to six people to chat (observe the pictures) - but any more than two costs $lots. Maybe worth a read through the information to see if it's worth considering for you?

    Seba, take a look at Stickam.com They provide a free video casting service. You could use their service to host the streaming and then password protect the room so non-family members couldn't join. As long as everyone has an account and knows what time to sign in you could host a room and then see everyone else. Not sure if audio work for everyone or just a the host, the video does and so does chat.

    You'll need to explore the options.

    God bless,
