    Which is better......to get a web cam, or to get a skype cam ?

    Or does it depend on which device your family member or other loved one has that you want to see and hear on the screen ?

    A regular webcam will work on skype. If you have a laptop with a built in cam, just use that. Most plug and play webcams (external cams) will say if they are Skype compatible. Anyone will do as long as it has a good name backing it up. (Nothing overly cheap but does not have to be expensive).
