Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the computer or the camera to freeze up.
First I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer. It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi,
First of all make sure your computer is free from virus..
You can download free stand alone anti virus tool like kaspersky or trend to scan pc.
Also the next step is to check the internet connection.

My video freezes about every 20 seconds i have to keep restarting


Could be a bandwith issue, but also try reinstalling Skype.
Sometimes downgrading to an older Skype version can also help.

Frozen video on calls


Try putting the camera under VFW (Video For Windows) control - it involves a registry edit and can be found here
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamfix.html
It didnt work for me at first - I had to download the windows amcap as well. VFW doubled my fps
If you open the 'webcam' menu on the webcam picture frame and also open 'Statistics' you can monitor the f/p/s during transmission - Generally try and keep the frames per second above 1.0 fps to prevent freezing. I transmit the 'small image' with my contacts and they zoom up to 200% -all on the webcam frame menu. When you open 'Statistics' you can tell if you are on VFW control - it will say VFW along the lower panel.
I also increased my virtual memory following an error message.

My built-in webcam on Windows Vista is very slow.


Tipically, video streaming over the internet is slower then when you are not connected to the internet, i.e, quickplay. There are many factors to considers such as your internet speed and the other person's speed. It is normal to see lagging when you are having video conferencing with other people, it also freezes momentarily, but, video should go back to normal after awhile, then, freezes again. Also, it depends on the other person's internet speed.

Best luck
