    Live messenger has video chat, no clue how well that works. Can't you just ask your fiance to strip in person instead?

    MSN video and audio quality is very poor compared to Yahoo so Y! gets my vote. :)

    well i just got stationed in ellsworth SD and she is in houston TX so in person doesn't work that good

    as for MSN lower quality out the window does it use less bandwidth i mean i want to use as little as possible as we have public wifi or my droid.

    Bandwidth doesn't really matter to me so I cant really say what one uses more or less....I can just comment on how good they look and in that department Yahoo is a clear winner by a long way; especially for audio.
