Default Most popular webcam sotware - 08-16-2009, 02:08 AM

I'm a newbee. Did a search for "webcam software", went through 6 pages of threads, but didn't find a definitive answer.

What is the best and/or most popular webcam software used for video chatting? I did not install the dell application when I reinstalled windows because I anticipate video chatting with people who have other brand computers/netbooks.

I see solutions such as skype and the various messenger apps from different sources. I will need to feel comfortable enough with suggesting the chosen software to friends, family members, and business associates so I want something good.

I think it looks like skype may be the way to go, but wanted to check with you all first.

Thanks,
David

Skype certainly seems to be popular and many people already have it.

I wouldn't use the Dell chat software, its just rebranded third party stuff.

I would recommend either Skype or MSN Messenger. Both are easy and free, Skype maybe considered a bit more professional, I have been using MSN since I was like 13!


Please do not send me support requests via PM.
