Summary: I bought this camera for my mom to use with Skype. Although the plug-and-play attribute of the camera works, the picture quality is barely acceptable, even after I tweaked Skype's video settings. I then tried to install the software on the cd-rom included with the webcam. What a nightmare! I have yet to be able to install it! Every time, I am told that the software cannot be downloaded, and to try again later.
