If the PC users youre connecting to are using NetMeeting, youre probably stuck with it. These video/chat programs tend to be proprietary and only work between themselves. There is no "standard" protocol for it. If you can convince the PC users to switch to something better you can take your pick of video conferencing software from www.versiontracker.com.

I haven't used these products so sticking to the terms I can't say that they are "Better"...  Will your camera work with it??? Dunno...

Well, "good" is relative. She's going to have to pick something she likes and get the PC users to switch.
