This problem is not fixed through the settings of your Creative device but by selecting the right webcamin your messaging software.
When you install your Creative Camera it installs the physical Camera as well as a virtual Camera. So there are actually 2 (or more Camera's installed). The Avatar plays through the virtual Camera.
Whatever programme you are using (MSN or SKYPE etc) you need to select the correct video Camera.
So, for example in MSN messenger, select Tools, Audio Video Setup and select your camera from the list (make sure the Virtual camera is not selected).
To be even clearer as an example: If you are using a LiveCam Notebook Ultra 3 camera, you will see the following listed as cameras when you go to select a webcam to use within your messaging software :
Live! Cam Ultra Notebook #3 -- this is your normal camera
Live! Cam Virtual -- this us the Avatar etc camera,
Live! Cam Ultra Notebook Ultra (VFW) -- this is your widescreen camera
hi there has this webcam ever worked on vista, ive checked the creative website and can not find the webcam listed, if it is an older model they may not have updated the drivers for this webcam, it may not be vista compatible. therefore i would like to suggest that it may result in a new camera
yeah you need the software for the webcam, You can go to the product's website which u can google and find it, google creative labs and then open the sight and you can go to support and find the cam that is yours and download the software for free.
I had the same problem with the vf-0050 on a win vista x32 PC. I Downloaded the latest XP driver from creative and installed it. THe camera works fine with MSN messenger and skype. I'll have to wait and see if it works with x64 as well.
Hope this works for you.
