I use MSN Instant Messenger for chatting with a friend 2 states away. Updating to IM 6.0, one of the new features is the ability to chat w/webcam. For those interested, it worked the first time it was used. Not one problem. It is not streaming video, the screen refreshed approx. every 2 seconds and there are only 3 screen sizes, but no special software - except IM 6.0.
