Re: Instant messaging

I would suggest dissabling messenger in windows if thats what you are using or update msn messenger and downloading Windows Live, as it is more capable of using the camera and is more widely used. It's free to download from here

How do I do a video webchat

Step 1:
Which messenger service ???? skype ,yahoo ,msn , google....
Use MSN for Video Chat b> Configure your webcam (see Below for help) if your computer does not have a built-in one. Launch MSN Messenger. Use your email address and password to sign in. Click on "Actions." Point to "Audio/Video" and select the "Start a video conversation" option. Navigate to your contact list. Highlight the username of the contact with whom you wish to video chat and click "OK." An invitation to begin video chat will be sent to the contact. Once the contact accepts the invitation, you will receive a confirmation message. Once the contact accepts your invitation, Messenger will automatically turn on your webcam and the contact will be able to see you. Chat with the contact by typing text into the text field and clicking "Send." Click on the webcam icon to end the conversation.

My logitech webcam won't work in msn messenger when i try to make a video says I need to buy or install a webcam? what's the deal? heeeelp

Hi Marilyn,

Have you installed the Logitech Quickcam program? If you did then open the application and select the instant messenger(i.e. MSN, SKype, Yahoo) that you will be using the camera.

If you have note yet installed the Logitech Quickcam application then I suggest you disconnect the webcam and run the software first.

Do you have MSN messenger or any other instant messenger program starting when your computer starts up, if so thats probably your problem.
Use MSconfig (in run box) or a program like cc cleaner to check your startup folder
