Frozen video on calls


Try putting the camera under VFW (Video For Windows) control - it involves a registry edit and can be found here
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamfix.html
It didnt work for me at first - I had to download the windows amcap as well. VFW doubled my fps
If you open the 'webcam' menu on the webcam picture frame and also open 'Statistics' you can monitor the f/p/s during transmission - Generally try and keep the frames per second above 1.0 fps to prevent freezing. I transmit the 'small image' with my contacts and they zoom up to 200% -all on the webcam frame menu. When you open 'Statistics' you can tell if you are on VFW control - it will say VFW along the lower panel.
I also increased my virtual memory following an error message.

My MSN freezes eveytime i go on webcam to somebody.


Sounds like a conflict or resource problem

1) Try downloading a new browser and run it without add-ons or plug-ins
set it to default and then try msn
2) I am more Yahoo than msn and one way to prevent this in Yahoo is to put the webcam under VFW control
try visiting this page - must be with IE !!
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstacamtest.html
This action makes a registry change - It increased the frames/ per/ second by 100% for me
3) Increase your virtual memory
4) You do not say if you are on dial-up, if you are I strongly recommend upgrading to broadband. Internet connection via mobile phone can be pretty fragile as well.

Yahoo messenger - Webcam is not connected


You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.
