    Video Conference from Saudi Arabia

    My wife's cousin is being deployed to Saudi Arabia very soon. His mom has asked me if I can setup a web cam on his computer at home so that he can talk to his kids while he's overseas.

    Those of you who have been deployed out of country, what software did you guys use for doing this type of thing? Is it just the standard video conferencing that is available via the normal chat clients (Yahoo, AIM, MSN, Google, etc), or did you use something different.

    Let me know so I can make sure that I help her pick out the right web cam for their computer. I want to make this as simple as possible for them.

    Thanks!

    AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) does video chat -- iChat does it better (but if you don't have a Mac, no luck there).

    I've used AOL Triton in Qatar to video call back to Florida. It worked fine. I use skype now and it works fine.

    We use SightSpeed as a free i-Net site for chatting with our grandkids. On our PC we had to invest in the $99 dollar camera, but now use the built in camera on our iMac's. I'm not sure on where or how far the service works...but check out SightSpeed info on a Google search.

    Hope it helps...
