    Hi, i've never really done video chat much.

    But my GF wants me to look into it now that we're a distance apart.

    I'm looking fora client that doesn't use a central server, like aim or yahoo.

    are there any programs i can download, that i can just plug her IP in and go straight to her?

    those all sounds like cool programs, but the direct ip connection is important to me.

    doesn't exist?

    with gcn it is quite simple.If the other person has gcn like you alyou both have to do is be on the net,type in there user name and the system will automatically connect you together.The draw back is with dialup there is about a 10 sec gap which is quite noticeable but with broadband it is much better
