Can someone please explain what is needed to use video with my computer in REAL TIME
to communicate with someone else (and what that someone else also needs).  I suspect that I need some specialized software to go along with a computer video camera (the type I have seen which sits on top of the computer "box").  

Thanks...

There are several Video communication packages out there.  You just both need to have the same software installed.  Are you and the otehr person using Microsoft Windows based PCs?  IF so easiest way is to use MSN messenger.  Your video camera should have also shipped with software to enable this.  There are others out as well, CUseeME is an older one, I think I spelled it right.  http://www.cuseeme.com/products/videoware.htm
ANy place that sells these cameras, should have software to allow you to use them.

Thanks for the response.  One thing I am confused over:  Do I need MSN messenger AND another software program or is MSN messenger one of the programs that enables this process.  I hate anything associated with MSN and will not use it if I don't have to.  Yes, I do use Microsoft Windows.

Microsoft netmeeting comes with the OS, and it works very well.  In response to the msn question, no you don't need anything else except for the camera drivers...
