Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera
When i am making a video call to my contact, i can view my contacts picture from my screen but my contact can't view my picture from his screen and we both can't hear each other speak but it would help if at least he can see my picture first of all but i should be able to hear him if i can see him.
When i try to show my webcam to my contact, windows live messenger is saying that it can't display my webcam to my contact and that i should check to see if my webcam is being used by another program but i didn't have any other programs open at all. I'm not too clever on computers and don't understand too much about software and their programs, basically im **** at computers, so please help me, why is webcam problems so common?
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:
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:
C. Windows Live Messenger:
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

More computers are coming with built-in webcams. They're designed to work in conjunction with instant messaging and VOIP programs like Yahoo! Messenger and Skype. Many photo editing programs, like Google's Picasa, can also capture photos directly from them. This article explains how your webcam with each of these free programs
1. Open Yahoo! Messenger and select "My Webcam" from the "Messenger" menu. This will bring up a window showing what your webcam sees. To invite one of your contacts to view your webcam, right-click on them in your contacts list and choose "Invite to View My Webcam" from the "More Actions" area of the pop-up menu. They will receive an invitation asking them to view your webcam.
2. Open Skype and select a contact you'd wish to call. Skype will automatically detect that you have a webcam attached to your computer and give you the option to place a "Call" or "Video call" to the contact. Choose "Video call" and you're in business.
3. Open Picasa and select the webcam icon to the right of the "Import" button. A window displaying a view from your webcam will pop up. Click the "Record" button or camera icon to begin recording a video or take a snapshot.
