Hi Gerry,

Pictures freezes during video call may be caused by insufficient connection bandwidth. Video data transmission from your end and the one you are calling can easily clog the connection and if you put also the audio at the same time from both parties, this will surely eat up your bandwidth. Worst if you share your connection with other users especially when you are using WiFi routers or downloading from the internet at the same time.

You may want to increase your connection speed to at least 384kbps.

How do I change the resolution


The Pro 9000 is an excellent webcam, so the problem is likely to be in your lighting or Internet connection. Try the free tips to improve webcam video quality in this article, particularly the ones on lighting. Make sure your Pro 9000 is plugged directly into a USB slot on your computer and not through a USB hub or extension cable. Also try to use it on a wired connection to your modem and avoid wireless. Lastly use this speedtest tool to make sure your upload speed is at least 256kb.

Keeps freezing with skype with latest version of skype and latest drivers for pro 9000 installed.


See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.

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:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

Frozen picture on web camera quickcam pro 9000


Check this; is a bug for Series 9000.

QUOTE(Jamie Watson @ Tue Oct 2 2007, 11:08) 447398
Splitcam has been known and used by some Skype users for quite some time, as a work-around to get Skype to accept video from devices that it wouldn't otherwise see, generally non-webcam devices such as DV camera adapters, video adapter cards and the like. It does seem to "work", at least in so far as some of those people have come back and said thanks, that solved the problem.

Conceptually it could avoid the Pro 9000 problem, since it would be handling the camera, and it has already been well established here that the "video freezing" and various other problems do not seem to occur when the Pro 9000 is used with other IM programs, or even with previous versions of Skype. However, it would add another layer of processing to your data stream, and a corresponding load to your computer, and it might have some negative effects in terms of speed/quality of the video stream. Of course, in my opinion "some negative effects" would have to be put into context compared to "not working at all" if that is your current situation with the Pro 9000, so what the heck, it's worth a try.

I have not seen any reports of virus/spyware/other associated with splitcam; I have seen a couple of comments about it having to be open and displaying adverts, I guess it depends on how much that might bother you; I just ignore that sort of thing and write it off to "they've got to make money somehow".

If you decide to try it, please let us know here how it goes.
END.


Hope help you. Good luck.

No video when using quickcam pro 9000 on google chat (gchat)


I had this problem but I fixed it. The google chat uninstaller does not uninstall everything. Go to the hidden folder Application Data of the default or local user in the Documents and Settings folder of the C drive, you will find the plugin folder for google chat. Delete it and then reinstall the plugin and it will work.

Camera works but microphone doesn't My wife has a QuickCam Pro 9000 Web Cam - Camera works - The speakers are in the screan and are realtek the computer seems also to be looking for realtek microphone and...


That KachiWachi guy is a **** indeed...
My fix for Vista 64 bit, yellow exclamation mark at Logitech Mic (Pro 9000) in Device Manager:

Right click Logitech Mic (Pro 9000), properties, driver, update driver

Browse my computer for driver software, location should be C:\Windows\System32\drivers, also make sure the Include subfolders box is checked

Click on Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
Make sure there is a checkmark at Show compatible hardware

Select the USB Audio Device instead of the Logitech Mic (Pro 9000) and click next

Now your microphone works by using the generic Windows driver instead of the Logitech ****!
