Problems with AIM

I just bought the Logitech Quickcam IM Plus, and it works when I just want to take pictures of myself, but not when i try to use it on AOL instant messenger. When i am talking to my friends, i click video, and a box pops up with my picture in the corner but i am not able to see my friend. then the box closes all by itself and says that i dont have a camera. Why is it doing this?

Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Go to the logitech website - identify your cam and click on it for support for your model

I bought and installed a quickcam IM plus. Videos choppy.


Sounds like your CPU may be overloaded. A simple way to check is to do a CTRL-ALT-DEL and look at the performance. See if any application is hogging your resources and, if so, you can change some of the settings to be more friendly to your system.

No sound when connected on aim


Is your microphone integrated into your webcam? Make sure the correct device is selected. Go into Edit, Settings, Enhanced IM. Under Audio and Video, make sure the Microphone device selected is a functioning mic, such as Logitech Mic, or if using a headset, select the USB headset (if usb) or your sound card if using a mic plugged into your built in or add-on sound card.

No sound+bad image quality


I would suggest uninstalling the software and trying you cam in a different usb port and installing the software again, but also check in the firewall allowed programmes for whatever IM programme you use. You can also have a faulty cam or faulty IM programme, so uninstall and reinstall the programme to illiminate it, and ensure you have a good connection as a slow connection causes problems along with running other memory and proccesor hungry programmes

Webcam not working


Try the following: 1. Install the latest drivers, which will have support for Vista. Your drivers are probably ment for XP and below. 2. You could also try with an installation guide for sound and video. Most IM has this function, i.e. MSN Messenger.
