Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam

1 Answer

A webcam compatible with Skype, Live Messenger etc

Good morning folks
I'm looking to buy a webcam to use primarily with Skype, but also (and ideally ! hey, I don't ask for much, do I ?) with other live apps.
I almost clicked "Buy" on a Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 but before I did, I Googled to see if there were any known issues....and hey presto, I see a load of users experiencing problems.
I'm based over in Ireland and am considering either a Microsoft, Trust, Logitech or Creative webcam (purely on brand trust)
Can I get a recommendation please ?
Many thanks

Deont know how to use my webcam

first you have to have the software to use it, most folks use the free windows live messenger, or yahoo messenger, AOL also has that capability. Skype is a free video telephone service that will allow you to do video calls to other people that have the skype installed on their computers. Some webcams come with software that allows you to take snapshots and make short movie/videos. Many websites (especially dating sites) will acitivte your webcam and allow you to make a video to share on the site, or you may even be able to live video chat with other people on the site if you choose. the cams can be a lot of fun and get you into a lot of trouble, have fun, but be careful. people can record what they see you doing.

How to install that web cam model PK 635 M in windows 7.. coz evrytime i open my cam in yahoo messenger it say that no camera was found in the system

I noticed that there is no Windows 7 specific driver for this older camera. This can be problematic as the older XP drivers sometimes work and sometimes do not work in Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit.

Good luck on this compatibility issue with Yahoo Messenger. Maybe try Skype or Windows Live Messenger for video chat.

When buying a web cam do you get one compatible with the tower or the screen...for example my friend has a sceptre screen and a dell tower

The screen is not an important consideration
He needs to be looking for a webcam:-
1) With a built in mic
2) Suitable for his OS - especially if he has Windows 7
3) Compatible with the chat programs he wants to use it in . For example Skype, Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger

Help with receiving webcam on Live messenger.

Hi there.
Go here, download and install flash player >>>>>>

once installed shut down skype and open messenger, you should be able to view webcams from now on, the trick is to only use one at a time because only one program will take over the cam.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

This could a problem of compatibility. Try to find if your web cam is compatible with windows live messenger for this you have to download from microsoft "amcap.exe". Run it and if you have more than one webcam installed, click the Devices menu and select the one you want to use.

3. Under “Color Space/Compression:”, choose one of the following formats:
o RGB 24 (recommend)
o I420
Note: If one of the options above isn’t in the list, then your webcam is not compatible.
Under “Output Size”, choose one of the following:
o 160 x 120
o 320 x 240
Note: If one of the options above isn’t in the list, then your webcam is not compatible.
5. Click OK
6. Close the ampcap application.
7. From your desktop, click ‘Start’ and select ‘Run’.
8. In the run box, type: dxdiag
9. In the confirmation dialog box, click OK.
10. On the System Tab under ‘System Information’, look for DirectX version. Verify that your version is DirectX 9.0. If it is, just click Exit. If your version is older than 9.0 (any lower number), download the latest version of DirectX from Microsoft.
