I thought it was just me, but now I find out others are having the same
problem. For the last 2 years, I've been communicating via webcam with my
daughter in South Korea. Although not always clear and often with noise in
the background which I attributed to the distance, the connection was still
fairly good. However for the last 5 weeks, I have been totally unable to
connect. Trying to connect from either my end or my daughters end results
in the same problem. Nothing happens and eventually times out. I tried the
beta version with the same results. We both use logitech webcams. At my
daughter's suggestion, I downloaded and installed Skype as she did. We
connected on the first try and the connection was unbelieavbly clear and
noise free. You would think she was next door. Far better than Messenger
