Best Way to Interface with Clients Abroad?

Hi all,
What does everyone use to communicate with clients abroad?
It would be nice to be able to play a song and have both myself and the client hear it (in relatively real time, I'm aware there's always a bit of latency), while also being able to speak to each other.
Video would be a bonus!

I'm familiar with Skype, is there anything that can be integrate into a website? Having minimal setup on the client end is ideal, it'd be sweet if they could just plug and play.

Love and Music

-Jim

I am sending MP3 of the work and get on the phone with them. Plain simple.

Hi Jim

Have you seen Welcome - SoundCloud I'm finding it very useful and there's a good level of interactivity. Plus you can include a dropbox in your website.

Virtual Glass does everything you require.

Overdrive, Jam, and MiserableSod,

Thanks so much for your advice!
I will definitely be checking out Sound Cloud and Virtual Glass when it comes out as a VST.

Cheers!
Jim

Source Connect
and Source Live

Source Elements / Welcome

they make RTAS, VST and AU plug-ins that allow you to work with very high quality audio in real time in a number of ways including locking sessions together for sync.

great stuff.
