Hi,
I have just installed a webcam and Netmeeting. Where can I go to test this out and make sure it works. I am going to do the same on a friends computer. We are both on 56k dial up.
Thanks

I would think the easiest way to test it would be to set up both PC's and see if you can talk to each other :-)

Hello,

you can use netmeeting through msn messenger which is probably the most secure way to use netmeeting. there are still a huge amount of servers that can be found on the net, but be warned, using these will expose you to a lot of perhaps unwanted rubbish.

connect together using msn messenger, then activate netmeeting, everthing should connect automatically, although you both may have to fiddle with sounds, etc, to get the best result.

56k can be ok with camera and sound, then again it can be lousy, it really is a matter of try and tweak.

In my humble opinion, I found netmeeting a bit tough, and found the likes of paltalk etc gave a better service.

good luck,
Bob
