    I double clicked my sister address ( she is not online ) > Chat window
    appeared. Cannot find Video button.
    I clicked menu at top right > found Video option, clicked it, and it said "
    Get a webcam " ?????

  2. The video button does not show unless she is online. You can't do anything,
    or initiate anything, unless she is able to accept the call.

    Update on installing webcam :
    The procedures are really simple. Here is what I did :
    Installed Windows Live Messenger.
    Plugged in the webcam
    Open Messenger, click " Show menu " icon ( top right ),
    Tools > Audio and video set up. Adjust settings > Finish.
    Click Add a Contact icon, 1st one from the top > enter my contacts.
    Sent invitations to contacts.
    Now, each time I open the Messenger window, a list of my contacts will
    appear. If they are on-line, a box in GREEN colour appear next to their
    names. White boxes = off line.
    Double click on the on-line contact, 2 screens appear, one on top of other.
    Top one is for the contact, bottom one is for me.
    I'll click the webcam icon next to my screen, ring-tone, contact.
