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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

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 logitech webcam won't work in msn messenger....in messenger when i try to make a video call...it 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.

Using skype, I can see other person but they can't see me


This is sometimes what happens when you have the Logitech camera software open at the same time you have your chat software open. I'm guessing that you are trying to chat using Yahoo Messenger or something like that. If you turn off your Logitech camera software, it should work within Yahoo or other software. The problem is that your camera cannot display two video chat windows--only one at a time and most people dont' know that and leave the Logitech software running in the background which prevents the camera from showing a picture to others. If this is not the problem, check the camera on another computer to ensure it works fine with the same software when chatting to someone. If it works on the other computer perfectly, then go to your "hardware acceleration" and move the slider all the way to the left. This will fix the problem quite possibly. If you don't know where that is, just type it into your Windows help and it will show you.

Microsoft LifeCam vx 3000?


According to the reading I just did, neither Windows Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger for Mac OS X have viable webcam support, particularly in the area of sending webcam from Mac to PC. I suggest both you and the person you are trying to webcam with download Skype, from  http://www.skype.com/download/skype/macosx/

If you have any further issues after this, don't hesitate to comment and ask for help again, there are other possible problems I could help you solve.

Logitech quickcam chat live video


Broadband will work better and smoother for sure. If the cam has a mic, then it would work for almost any chat system you can get. You will get both video and audio.

Mic not working


Check that your mic is not dissabled in the volume properties, but also check that your instant messenger is set to recognise sound and audio. The best thing to do is to try recording a short video in windows movie maker 2 to check the cam is working ok
