Re: problem server cam connection is always busy
has corrupt driver.
disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software
program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the
USB port, do so and it should work.
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/

then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone
and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
click on the Video Settings.
camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
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
) set it up as follows:
Messenger at the top left and click on it.
go down to Preferences and click on it.
Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to
the computer Audio Card.
go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on
“Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left
C. Windows Live Messenger:

square on top left next to the red X.

You may be on dial up and operating at the lower end of the bandwidth. I have never seen this message since I upgraded to broadband.I guess the guys on dial-up are the first to be denied access when the server is busy
I used to get this when I was on dial-up but never since going broadband - so the bandwidth may be fragile. You need to interrogate what is happening when the webcam is transmitting by opening the webcam menu on the webcam frame and click "statistics" Its best to transmit the "small" image and use the zoom 200% when established ( same as sending large photos by email ) - if I go for speed rather than quality on the slider I can achieve 5-6 frames per second ( small size) but I normally transmit about 1-2 f/s. I have my webcam under VFW (video for windows) control as I used to get freeze problems. This involves a registry change - detailed in Messenger help
You can tell when its under VFW control because VFW will be on the bottom of the Statistics box. You may need a little bit of software to make it work, if like me you do not have Directx on your pc - if so download the software featured here.
Dont worry about using the proxy server in "Connections" - Use it when you have to - I had to use it today to make my my webcam work - I also had to increase my virtual memory but that was as a result of error messages
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall
the software program. When the program asks you to connect the
camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
