What is a good webcam & audio chat software for low-bandwidth usage?

I just moved away for university, and am living on campus. The internet is terribly slow. To further add to my troubles, I'm in a long-distance relationship with my girlfriend, whom I'd love to be able to webcam with, but at the same time, I'd love it if it didn't look like a stop-motion movie the whole time (I'm currently using Windows Live Messenger). I'd love to find a solution that can provide me with a smooth picture, while maintaining a low bandwidth consumption (which I think may help to alleviate the problem).

"A few suggestions

Try a few different chat clients with video that allows you to tweak the video settings. I'm fairly happy with skype on windows.
Use good webcams on both ends.
And the easiest way to improve video calls. Use plenty of light"
