i think the only solution for you is for your girlfriend to download aol instant messanger (aim) and for you to use ichat. i wish i could video conference on msn but that is not an option at the moment.

you can both also download yahoo messenger and use that as well...
Last time I tried Yahoo Messenger though you only get video - no audio...
so you still have to type! The colours and quality of video feed was terrible as well!

I have a mate who has had all sorts of trouble attempting to video chat between iChat and a PC AIM user. Good luck mate - and there are heaps of threads in here to assist if you encounter any problems.

Skype, MSN, Google Talk etc. can be used for Audio / Video chats. If you are looking into web-video conferencing, I would recommend using WebEx, gomeetnow, gotomeeting etc.
