Question about Creative Labs Video Blaster WebCam NX PRO

1 Answer

Problems with installing program.

Hi,
My Creative WebCam NX didn't work the second time I went to use in with Yahoo messenger. I could see m pic on a larger screen for taking pics, but not on the broadcasting screen. When I commanded the pc to show my webcam, my pc said there was no webcam installed. I tried reinstalling the driver, and it now works, BUT the Installshield wizard doesn't move past 5% installation, and I am concerned that when I shut the pc down, and try the webcam again and stop the installation process( that appears stopped or frozen), I will have the same problem again. Should I just find the driver on the net, and skip using the disk?

Normal 0 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

Split cam is not showing video i connect to yahoo and i just get a black screen


make sure that you setting up your webcam on your yahoo messenger properly, this problems are not setup properly on YM.
Go to Preferences on your Yahoo Messenger, see it there that your webcam is currently default to use on the system, and if not, just to select your Creative Labs Live Cam.
Or maybe you didn't install yet your nice cam. You have to setup that before you use all your chat messenger program. Good luck!
