Default USING WEB CAMERAS Without MSN, Yahoo, AIM etc....

I recently purchased a Creative Web Cam Live for me and my girlfriend. I installed the camera fine and the quality was pretty good I have to say. The problem came when I was trying to link the two cameras for me and my girlfriend to see each other online while talking. There doesnt seem to be anyway to use the device for this other than using MSN, yahoo or AIM messenger - which severly downgrades the quality of the video. I guess my basic question, is can these cameras or any web cams for the matter be used with their software alone to comunicate with people online???? I was able to see myself fine and in very good quality on my cam but whats the point of that - the only way I was able to see her was through a crappy little video screen that AIM has. Thanks for any help with this

It downgrades the Quality of the Video because its on the Internet - anything you use will downgrade the quality so that on the other end the video comes through as a video, not a load of pictures.
