Webcam video resizing

Hi everybody,
The new version of MSN Messenger (version 7) has an option which lets you
resize the video conversation.

I was wondering if there's a way of resizing the area of the webcam using
Windows Messenger 5.1 with Live Communication Server 2003/2005?

Will this feature be included in Windows Messenger 6.0?

Greetings Martin,

The upcoming Microsoft Communicator (read as Windows Messenger 6) release does allow an
enlarged video window, however it will not connect to Exchange IM.

Unfortunately there is no way to enlarge the video window in Windows Messenger 5.1.

As I said before, no Exchange IM support.
