Is your girlfriend using the Windows version of Mercury or is she using MS's MSN Messenger?

Yes i'd like to know this too!

I've been video chatting with my gf (who lives on the other side of the world) using Yahoo. We never got more than 1 frame per second, but at least we could see each other. I always figured my G3 iMac was just too slow.

So I'll give mercury a go sometime, but i'd like to know if she needs to install it too (or will regular msn do?).

It should work with either MSN or Mercury in the other side (PC). PC users (W*ndows ou L*nux) must instal JMF, also needed for Mac OS X in some cases. More info:
