O.P. video calls?
Help, I've upgraded my computer and when I reloaded windows live I don't have the option to just open my webcam anymore when I'm in a conversation with someone.
Now I can only choose between 'call a computer', or 'start video call with this person'
I used the video call option, but the picture is very grainy not nearly as clear as when I could just use the web cam on it's own.
Can I dowload an earlier version of W.L.M to fix this problem or is there a setting somewhere I can change???
Any help will be appreiciated

RE: video calls?
The "Send webcam" feature has been removed from the latest versions of WLM (both stable & beta) in favour of higher quality video calling.

Your picture shouldn't be coming out grainy, on the contrary it should be clearer.  Does it appear "grainy" on both ends?

yes, unfortunately it is grainy on both ends, the person I talk to doesn't have audio on his pc, so it was great to just use the cams
