If you have an internet connection that supports slip or PPP, you can run
CuSeeMe. This is the package for doing video over the internet. NASA and
some universities run 'reflectors', computers that many users can connect
to and view common video. NASA select, is on about 5 or more of these.
While the frame rate depends on your connection and the usage, you can
get 5-7 frames per second with a 28.8 dialup. Some of the sites carry
audio as well.
 
The software comes in a free version, called CuSeeMe, and and marketed
version known as CuSeeMe Enhanced. Copies are available on the web and by
FTP. Doing a search on 'white pine' or CU-SEEME should get you the closest
site you can snag it from.

Hope this does the trick..
