1. First download and install Microsoft NetMeeting for free
here. Be sure and
bookmark this page so we can help you get started using it. (If you are using an Apple computer CUSeeMe is
a popular videochat software.)
2. After you have installed the NetMeeting software find it
under the start menu, usually listed in programs/accessories/communications/netmeeting.
Launch NetMeeting now by choosing it in the start menu. Now NetMeeting
should be running on your computer.
3. Now go under the options menu and set up your information
if the NetMeeting wizard hasn't done it for you already. If your information
is blank it will be very difficult for you to find a partner to videochat
4. Your browser Internet Explorer should now be configured correctly
to use the Videofrog ILS scanner.
If you aren't using Internet Explorer please switch to that browser
now. Unfortunately the callto: links NetMeeting uses do not work correctly
in other browsers. Now click here to visit the ILS scanner. You can
browse the list of users all over the world and request connections.
Please remember that if you don't have a webcam it will be difficult
to find a willing partner to videochat with you. Here's a good site
that sells webcams for a low price. They can cost anywhere from 30
