You need to install one of the Messengers to be able to communicate with your son and he will have to do the same.
First, go to this site and download SKYPE http://www.skype.com/intl/en/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ and install it on your computer. He will also have to download it and install it on his. Once you get it set up and he does you can add his contact ID to your contact list. Then to setup the audio/video follow these instructions.
Normal 0 After you install Skype and have it operational with your ID. Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional information to setup video.

Hope this helps. Bud

How do i set up my webcam to talk to my family


Assuming webcam is separate device. Most of these are typically USB connected. You should have webcam software to drive the camera. The software is a video encoder to package and deliver video content. Typically now, webcams have microphones built-in for audio. Install the software first, then connect the web cam to a USB port. This type wil only fit a certain connecter and only one way. Do not force to prevent damage. The software should provide a means to test your webcam and any microphone. You can also use something like Yahoo! Instant Messenger or Skype to test a connection with video.
