Question about Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Webcam

1 Answer

Communication Errors between Mac & Windows

My husband and I recently purchased a Quickcam Pro 5000 for his parents so they can video chat with our son. We have iMac with iSight and login to chat via iChat. They use a Windows operating system and login to chat using AOL. Everytime we invite each other to chat, we get an error message that there is a communication error. iChat's "Help" feature" doesn't really explain the problem or a possible remedy and we are truly at a loss. We have had successful other video chats with other people on our buddy lists previously and since, but those people might have Macs, as well. Is there a documented problem with Mac users not being able to communicate with Windows users? If so, is there something that can be done? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm assuming when you say they login with AOL, that you mean they use AOL Instant Messenger, since iChat is compatible with that. If that is the case, it should work. As long as the chat clienta are compatible, there should be no issue with using a Mac and a PC. What would be helpful is the exact text of the message. Can you post that?

Mac OS 10.4 or Above

To use a Logitech camera on your Mac OS X computer, please purchase a Logitech camera that is UVC compliant, this camera will have basic functionality for use with a third party application but no additional features will be available such as (Rightlight, Rightsound or Video Effects)

All UVC Complaint Webcams listed in table below

This article applies to the following platforms:
Macintosh OS X 10.4.9 - 10.5.2

The Logitech webcams listed below are UVC (Universal Video Class) compliant and can be used with operating systems which fully support this standard; including Mac OS 10.4.9 and above.

Please note that standard UVC drivers are provided by the Operating System and will provide minimal camera support only. Unique Logitech features, such as RightLight and Video Effects are not functional via UVC drivers.

Furthermore, we recommend the use of a full Logitech installation package, where available, for supported operating systems such as Windows XP and Windows Vista.

Camera Name                                       P/N
QuickCam Ultra Vision SE                 860-00023
QuickCam Ultra Vision                       861238
QuickCam Orbit/Sphere MP               861305
QuickCam Fusion                             861304
QuickCam Pro 5000                          861306
QuickCam Pro 9000                          861464
QuickCam Pro for Notebooks          860-000026
QuickCam for Notebooks Pro                861303
QuickCam Communicate Deluxe     861235
QuickCam Deluxe for Notebooks     860-000009
QuickCam Orbit AF                       860-000063

Try these, as the manufacturer's site is saying that the 3000 is not compatibl with Mac OS.

For Guest :

You can download the software from here :

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/480/3359&cl=in,en

Select the opeating system, download, install and use.

Good Luck.

Logitech WebCam Pro 5000 - Video Problem


Well the thing is with Digital Camera If there is lots going on (on the computer) your other program might interfer
1st end all processes that might have anything to do with the camera or that may be using any of its features, I would retart your computer as well
If you still have any issue uninstall and reinstall the drivers for the camera.
But I'm thinking you might have too much going on in the computer at the same time

Need help


Hi what you have to do is "Open Port(s)" in your Firewall. I have found a tutorial link below to help. Simply you need to find out which "Port(s)" ya need "Open" then "Open" these "Port(s)" through the Windows Firewall, & OR any Other... by following the tutorial & use that/those "Port Number(s)" for real. I believe for Yahoo the "Ports" needed to be "opened" are. Both UDP/TCP 5000 to 5010. Meaning open 10 "Ports" through ya Firewall. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial40.html
