Webcam & Protools? Help

I am doing some coaching long distance, and wanted to know if I could run a webcam with protools open. Anybody in the know? Will G-mail work, or Messenger??

Never tried it specifically, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Pro Tools doesn't restrict your connection to the internet. I would expect some possible hits to performance with a cam going, but it should still work ok.

Only one way to find out...

If it's not a very heavy session it should work. Pro Tools can get pissed if you run a lot of other things at the same time. If you experience problems you could try fiddling with the system usage in Pro Tools.
