Using Dynex Webcam in Messenger

I installed this Dynex Webcam in Messenger 9.0 running on Vista. I bought the computer last Christmas. I can see myself on the cam but my friends cannot. What do I need to do or install in order for this to work?

This may work, if you don't mind going backwards a little bit. Lots of folks have had problems with version 9, from not working at all, to webcam problems, video problems, audio problems on and on. Google: Windows Live Messenger (Version 8.5). This is the best version they put out and versions after that lack some of the features found in 8.5.. I am not talking about "regular" Windows Messenger here, but rather Windows LIVE Messenger 8.5. Completely remove your old version and download and install the above version. It also has, in one of the tabs, a place where you can choose which camera you are using. I am currently running two differerent cameras, but I only use the one for Live Messenger. The other one uses a free program I found on the web which allows me to monitor my home when I am away. Getting back to your problem......make sure that you ONLY are downloading Windows Live Messenger v8.5 and no other. Some sites will automatically jump you to the latest version, and you don't want that. Try www.majorgeeks.com I think that's where I got mine but even that may direct you to Microsofts web site. You still have the option as to which version you can download. If this cures your problem, please rate this solution as helpful. Thanks and good luck.

My Logitech Webcam has worked for a bit now I had it since christmas and now it doesn't work... I tried reinstalling it ):<


Disconnect webcam
Download Revo free uninstaller

http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

Double click on Logitech - Use the 'Advanced' mode - Revo will make a Restore Point and then uninstall Messenger using the Logitech uninstall software.
It will then scan your C drive and Registry for all fragments and files that failed to uninstall.
Delete everything it finds
Restart computer

Visit the Logi website - click on your cam and download the Installer

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

Run the installer and connect your webcam when prompted

Note - you also need DirectX installed to run your Logitech webcam - this is downloaded separately

Yahoo may just be having server issues if the rest of your internet seems to be running fine.

Try re-downloading later on once they may have solved the issue. Remember there are plenty of other messenger programs compatible with the Yahoo messenger system.

Lost installation cd of my logitech quickcam messenger 2


regardless of the model, you will be able to find the CD contents for your webcam in the link below.

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/support_downloads/downloads/

but if you have a vista usually you won't have to use the CD anymore, if the PC is online just let it search and download the right drivers for your webcam.

good luck.

VideoCam Messenger No Video


This is how I got the VideoCam Messenger to work on a computer running Windows 7 (32-bit):

VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!: DO NOT restart your computer at any point until the very end of these steps.

1. Plug in the webcam.

2. Windows will install their weird Sonix driver from 1994 automatically.

3. The most crucial part: Click "Devices" in the Windows Control Panel. Click on the USB Camera (whatever the webcam is called)... then you need to go to the "Properties" until you can UNINSTALL the driver that Windows automatically installed. I think you have to click Properties twice to be able to get to a place where it lets you uninstall the driver.

4. DO NOT restart.

5. Download this: http://download.geniusnet.com/webcam/VCMessenger_V.zip (Incase the link is broken, this is directly from the GeniusNet website and it's called "VideoCAM Messenger Driver for Win 7 / vista 32 bit")

6. Install this completely, but DO NOT restart. (Also, make sure you click "Install this anyway" when it asks you about being an unsigned driver.)

7. After you do that and you DO NOT restart, it will automatically come up with a screen that shows Windows installing the driver, but this time it's installing the actual driver from the software you downloaded in step 4.

You may now restart your computer if you want.

If you do these steps correctly, I guarantee you will have your VideoCam Messenger webcam working.
