    Try lowering your security settings to medium. Can't have the cam on except only in the one application you want to use it, such as only yahoo IM or only in msn. What is your operating system. Make sure EVERYTHING is updated, drivers, programs such as Adobe Flash Player, you should get prompts for them but not all ways. I never could get a cam to work in AOL IM when it would work in other IM services so some things may not be compatible, but it should work at least in one. Some services may require you have your pop up blocker adjusted to allow pop ups from that site i.e., yahoo

Not sure if this has been resolved or not. I had forgot to put the information at the end of this page in the Clarification Request. Plus there are some other things to try which I will mention here. Just curious as to what the OS is and how long the cam had been installed and if it works when you are not in an IM program. Make sure that you have the cam software/drivers updated, there may be a box for you to check mark in the properties section that will ask if you want to receive automatic updates, or you can search the web for your brand and model of cam, as well as Microsoft if you are running windows or the other if you are running another.Don't turn the cam on prior to signing into the IM and not untill you click the icon to start video cam, it should turn on automatically,

Also check your device manager to make sure the computer is recognizing the cam/device and that it is enabled. To do this in windows: left click/select > Start > then right click MY COMPUTER for the drop down menu > left click/select PROPERTIES >left click/select HARDWARE > left click/select DEVICE MANAGER > in the menu look for IMAGING DEVICES > left click/select the box next to it then > right click your device > left click/select PROPERTIES from the drop menu, then click/select general tab and see to make sure the device is enabled

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

You need to check your video settings in Yahoo Messenger. If you look at the video settings in MSN you should see your webcam listed as the active device. Now check in YM, is the camera listed? If not can you select it from a drop-down?

HP WEBCAM DOESN'T WORK WITH INSTANT MESSENGER


Are you using Flash Player on MSN? This sounds like you need to turn on access from the flash player setting menu. This sounds like another issue with the latest update of flash player. Also, you might try 'unchecking' the box for 'use hardware acceleration' in the flash player settings.

check out ur audio driver in device manager look for update.
you can update in device manager but sometimes(more often than not) get reply latest driver installed.
well the latest driver isnt always the best.
if this the case download a driver from hp site .if driver still no better or worse;you can roll back driver in device mannager to previous one.
could try update codecs (encode/decode) as different codecs have different compression ratio's.
