    I am currently using Jitsi using Kindle Fire 8HD to give video calls to my mother (and father) to their grandson and my mother isn't happy with the quality- she says like looking through a keyhole. My son is active, runs around and gets too close to the camera. My current computer is a Fujitsu Win 7 computer that is on its last legs. Some time we will buy a new computer with Win 10. My parents have given me 10000 Australian dollars so she said I buy something to improve the video calls. I just don't what is needed so any suggestions? I live in Japan and my parents live in Australia and they have quality issues with using Skype.

    Even a 50 dollar webcam can make a massive difference. Other than that it's going to be down to connection between the two. Tablets have awful built in cameras.

    It needs to be portable.

    My current personal computer is unstable to video communication- it might memory dump. It is the Japanese Version so it near impossible to fix.

    I thought the connection is also a factor in determining the quality of the video.
