    Webcams on the Network

    Hi

    I to get a couple of my classrooms talking to each other with webcams. I could use netmeeting, it works fine - just looks a bit naff. Does any one know of any other software or the best way to do this.

    thanks

    I've used SightSpeed, it works, but to be honest netmeeting does the same job!

    You could try using Windows Media Encoder which is free and can be used to send a video camera feed /sound across to several network machines at the same time live

    Thanks Indie,

    I may be wrong but is sightspeed an internet based method, I could not see any way of liniting it to network use only, it seems silly to use the internet to talk across the network. I may however got this all wrong

    Good point, what *should* happen is that when you connect to a contact it'll try and connect to that persons IP address. So if the person on the other end is on your LAN the video traffic shouldn't go out on to the internet.

    I don't have it installed anymore, you might just want to download it and give it a try!
