Question about Philips SPC700NC Webcam

My cam is crashing in yahoo

My camera works fine in the philips software, but if try to start it in yahoo messenger, then yahoo messenger freezes completely and I have to restart my computer to exit the program. I have enough ram, I have enough free space on my computer, I have windows xp. It's driving me crazy. If I try to use it in windows messenger, I can see myself sometimes, but no one can see me on their computer. I have followed all the advice on this board for that problem, but still nothing changes. the people trying to receive my video feed get a little camera icon with a red x on it. Help

Re: My cam is crashing in yahoo

If you have already, i apologise, but you may need to set up yhe camera in messenger, although you should really upgrade to Windows Live as it's a lot better, as there are settings the programme needs to configure first.

Check your camera in the QuickCam software. If your camera works properly in the QuickCam software, then this issue is specific to Yahoo Messenger.
Make sure you have the correct version of the Messenger installed for your OS. Also make sure that the camera driver is the correct driver for your OS.

If the issue persists, then I'm afraid you'll have to contact Yahoo Messenger support for a resolution.

Philips spc 700nc web cam

First of all, have you verified you are using latest version of MSN messenger. If so and the problem still exists, give one of the other instant messengers a try, say like YM or AIM or any number of others.
What exactly do you mean by ' seems to work '?? Can you see yourself in the cam using whatever software other then MSN that you may have on your computer.
