skype cams

I am new to the web cam era and would like to know what is required for Windows program in order to be able to use a skype/web cam. Do I need special software in addition to purchasing the web cam? My computer does not have a camera.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Want to communicate with "grands"

Try simple.

When you shop for your web cam be sure it not only notes the version of Windows you use but that it lists Skype.
