Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera
I bought a vx 5000 for xmas, I installed the software that came with it, then plugged the cam in when prompted to. The audio works fine, but it won't show my cam, and others can't see me. Then the computer tells me that the camera is being used in another application or it is not plugged in. I am soooooooooo frustrated and have downloaded all types of drivers trying to figure this out. I am using windows vista. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or
Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect
the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
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:
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
