Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

I have install Logitech Webcam 1.3 Megapixel to my desktop. First it was working good but now I am unable to chat with my sister. When we connect to each other we can only hear our voice but we can not see...


I am sorry that I need you to clarify, but it's not possible to help you troubleshoot without knowing with which program you are chatting with your sister. Skype or Yahoomessenger or Gtalk or etc... and I also need the installed operating system on your desktop. If possible, let me know the system configuration to let me help you diagnose the issue in a better and easier steps.
Thanks and awaiting.

I have followed instructions with set up of new logitech cam chat but still all my friends are unavailable. the also have logitech cams and using ligitech vid as i am. thank you


Make sure you all use the same version of the chat software.
Next check that your webcam is working locally. You can check the device manager and use a local webcam program to check that.
ALso make sure the chat program is defined as an exception in the Windows firewall so it is not blocked.

Picture is very grainy - qickcam chat webcam - friends and family can see me, but they say it is VERY grainy


Most QuickCams have a focus ring in front, try turning that to get a sharper image. The other option is that you are running the webcam in a very low resolution, so change the configuration to the highest resolution possible.
