Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam

1 Answer

Unable to view each other via newly installed QuickCam

I recently purchased two new Logitech Quick Cam for Skype. The software was installed using the disk that was provided. I updated my drivers on line but the other person has not. We are both using yahoo Messenger that has all the updates installed. Prior to the new year we were able to view each other but the audio wasn't working. Now in Jan When when requesting the other person to view our webcam the screen that should display the other person remains black. We both receive a message that the other is viewing our webcam but we do not have video. We are able to view ourselves using the quickcam function to make a video.

Try this and I have it for both Skype and Yahoo.

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 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 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 see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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.

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

My eyeshot builtin web cam is not working when i am on skype


Did you try uninstalling your Skype? Maybe your Skype version is an old one (recently they launched the new version). Also, if you Skype tried to update automatically and was interrupted it can cause issues.
My suggestion is to uninstall your Skype using Revo Uninstaller, then go to official Skype website and download the latest version which you will install. They try if it works.
Other thing that might be causing the problem is your camera. Please, go to your Skype now, choose tools>options>video settings and see if Skype recognizes your cam (it will appear in drop down window). If your cam is not listed let me know to find you a solution, but first try uninstalling Skype.
I would also like you to tell me the error message you get.

QuickCam Pro 9000 problem (Vista 64 bit)


make sure the following INF installed in %windir%\inf?

* usb.inf
* wdmaudio.inf
* wdma_usb.inf

The usb.inf is likely missing. Download it and place it in the windows\inf folder. Then remove all logitech drivers and software and re-install.
