Hi guys....

I'm heading off on a trip to Hong Kong soon, and am thinking of either buying a HTC Diamond or a iphone...    I do need the phone to perform one function though...  I travel around quite regularly, so I would like to setup my phone, in a way that I can use the phone directly over wi-fi to use MSN.... 

I would like to keep in touch with my girlfriend back home, so I am looking for a software/app that will allow me to use the "internal" camera, together with MSN to stream video feeds back to her computer at home...

Is there a software that will allow me to do that currently?  Need not necessarily be using MSN too...  Searched around, and the only possible software seems to be Ateksoft Coolcam, but not sure whether that will work even?

Thanks!

there's nothing that will let you do this at the moment on an iphone.  you can use it to chat on msn though using apps from the store such as IM+ (Free) or some others that you need to pay for.

What about some other program?  I guess I'm basically looking for a video conferencing software for my phone... 

Phone (with sound and using 3g internal camera and via wifi) ---> Connect to a computer..

Thanks!

www.qik.com lets you stream video from an iphone 2g or 3g straight to the web so any one can watch it live.

qik is only for hacked iphones?  Also the OP seems to want to be able to chat with the person at the other end, making Qik a bit useless in this scenario, can you confirm jesseycy?  Even still, the OP will need to jailbreak their phone to use Qik.

Yes, I think that's the main problem...  I don't exactly want everyone being involved in a chat with my girlfriend....  Tongue out

I travel a lot, so I want to use my phone and use wifi and have a good chat (with video) someone back home....  Kinda like a "video call" over wifi...

I'm quite surprised that there aren't any software out there yet!  It'll be a big market!
