Hi, I was wondering if you can help me with a Skype issue.  My friend and I video chat all the time and we're both running Windows XP and both have cable internet connection.

We can video chat via Skype with no problems, however, my friend says that my video is very delayed, ie., he can hear me chatting away, but my video is totally out of sync.  Very delayed.
But when I'm viewing his video on my machine, my friend's video and voice are in sync all the time.  Why is that?
Is there a way I can fix this problem?  Is it my webcam?  It is a pretty old webcam (Intel CS430).  But I'm not sure if that would be the problem, would it?
