Hi All

Just a quick question - is it possible to have a 1 way video conversation using Microsoft Messenger i.e person other end can see me, but as the other person does not have webcam I can't see them?

Does not seem to work in practice.

? Well yer if you have a cam they'll see you. And if they havent got 1 then obviously u cant see them. Depends on what v of Windows you have. I dont know, if its me, but even tho XP has Messenger, and the video option, the useless thing doesnt work lol. It doesnt pick up the cam. Even tho everything else does. Windows Explorer, you can see the picture, in Yahoo Messenger, you can, any other video conferencing program, but Windows Messenger! IT SUX!

Also, XP's Messenger, I think BOTH of you have to use the same Version of Messenger And XP. ie: You can't use it with someone else using another version of Windows either. Don't waste your time, using Messenger. Get something else. that'll work!
