    Thread title says it all. I'm trying to VC with my girlfriend, who runs Vista. I'm just wondering if there's a program (other then AIM - I'm not a big fan) that is free and will allow that, and which you guys think will be best.

    Thank you very much!

    I have used MSN Messenger running it on Windows XP Pro via Boot Camp and Parallels.

    But the best experience I have is with Skype:

    It's free, and the video quality is pretty good.

    Great solution for Video conferencing on Mac

    I wanted to write in and let you know I am client of MegaMeeting. They are completely browser based and they allow up to 16 videos up at one time in each room. You can even have multiple rooms at the same time, which is great for educational or business type needs. I have been using them from about 6 months and found their customer support is amazing and they will even train you on how to use the system which makes it easy and fun to use. I would suggest you check them out if you need video conferencing for anything. My rep is Matt McClure and he has done great in making this simple and easy.

    Skype or Google+ HangOuts

    Skype really works well, is on both platforms and just recently added video support.

    If both of you have Gmail accounts, go to Google+ and start a HangOut session, its free, voice, video and chat by typing and much more... Works best with the Chrome Browser or Firefox.
