Slowness


To work around this issue, reduce the bandwidth requirements. To reduce the bandwidth requirements, set the camera to send reduced resolution video. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Close the video call.
  2. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft LifeCam, and then click Microsoft LifeCam.
  3. Click Open resolution settings.
  4. In the Video Resolution section, select a lower resolution.
  5. Close the Resolution settings window, and then try the video call again.
If you have to make more improvements, go to step 4, and then select a lower setting.

If lowering the resolution doesn’t resolve the problem, try these additional steps:
  • Close other programs that may be using the Internet, such as your browser.
  • Ask your Internet service provider (ISP) how to optimize the performance of the Internet connection.
  • Ask your IM contacts to also try the steps in the previous two bullets.

I just bought a microsoft lifecam vx 600 and it works properly but when i try and use the webcam on MSN it dont work it says " We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is...


Well, your not using it as far as you know, but when you installed your camera you installed some programs that came whit it, some of those programs is running in the background and occupied the camera, nothing wrong whit that, but you need to shut those programs down to realese the camera so you can use it whit msn.

First:
Look at the bottom to the left on your pc/laptop, see if there is any program that refering to your camera, if so, rightclick on the program and exit it.

Second:
Click on the "start" button down at the left, select "Run", type "msconfig" in the window and hit enter.
You will now see a new window, one of the flicks say "Autostart" select that one. You will now see all the programs that runs in the background, tick off all that refering to your webcam, that will make those programs to not automaticly start up when you start your PC/Laptop, press OK and restart you PC/Laptop.

Now your webcam is free and can be used in any programs you want.

Thanx for using FixYa!

Code error 0x80040606


Can you try the following to see if it works? 1st, Make sure QuickCam Version 11.0.0.1218 is installed. 2nd, Make a copy of the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\LogiShrd" to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Logitech". After you make a copy of this folder, under C:\Program Files\Common Files you should see both a "LogiShrd" and a "Logitech" folder. Both folders should have the same content under them (ie. "LVMVFM" directory, "KAudP" directory, etc...) 3rd, Uninstall Logitech QuickCam Version 11.0.0.1218, and the QuickCam Drivers in Add/Remove programs. 4th, Reboot. 5th, Reinstall 11.0.0.1218 See if this works... Also, an alternative: instead of "uninstalling" Logitech QuickCam version 11.0.0.1218 in Step 3 above, you can try "Repairing" it from Add/Remove, and do not uninstall the drivers. Background: Working with a forum poster, we found a problem with a path-resolution function that maybe triggered by a Windows Update. Basically, it seems a Windows Update is added some extra folder attributes that causes the path resolution function to fail. When the path resolution failed, the code was set to failsafe to a "Logitech" directory instead of "LogiShrd" directory. This would also explain why these problems don't happen 100% of the time (because it seems the path resolution function doesn't fail 100% of the time) and the errors started appearing in 10.5 and above, when the Logitech folder was renamed to LogiShrd. Hope this helps!

Resolution & picture problem


Solved it... :D
Well, the resolution option depends up on application that uses the camera at that moment... Dumb or not, this could have happened to anyone who used it with no additional software ( just with "My Computer -> MSI Star Cam 370i " icon )..

Sounds like you are running vista if you are here is the solution that you need to get the camera to work.

This fix will work for all of the VEO Stingray problems because it gives a good driver download site and it tells you step by step how to get your cam to work with VISTA Good Luck and let me know if this fixed your problems.


1.Go to this site and download the driver you need: http://www.softsci.com/veodrivers.htm

2.Download it to your desktop

3. Don't unzip, install, or plug in your cam yet

4.Search for this in your start menu: Program Compatibility Wizard

5. Of the three choices click the one that says look for the program manually

6. Choose the option for XP

7. Choose the 680 x 420 or whatever it is not the 256 colors

8. Choose to run as administrator

9. Click next and it should change your screen to a real big resolution and then it will start to install the driver

10. Go through the install wizard

11. After it has loaded plug in your camera

12. Try a program that it is supposed to work with

13. Finish the Compatibility Wizard

now everything should work for your cam.
This works with all of your programs that vista will not run.
