Hello,
My son lives in an apartment during the week with a shared network which is too slow to watch streamed football (.5kbs ). My connection is fast and I would like to know if I can use a webcam through Skype on my computer to allow him to watch it from my screen with out the stop/starting that he has now. Thanks in advance. Gary

I doubt it. If anything, I think it would be worse. He still has a slow connection to his ISP, then to you. Add Skype overhead and it will be horrible.

OK. Thanks for the reply. He'll have to go without for a while.
