I received a webcam for Christmas and was wondering what the best software to use was? My 4 year old nephew is moving to Montana and I would like to keep in touch with him by video chat.

Thanks,
Big Jeff

Nope, all you need is a mic. If you want to phone peoples mobiles or house phones then you have to buy credit. Other wise its just a really cool phone/video chat messenger application.
