Question about Instant Messaging
I downloaded Messenger 9 a couple of weeks ago, and ever since then my webcam has refused to operate It is a Logitech Orbit. It worked fine without error on all prior messengers, and so i am thinking of reverting back to an older version, even though i prefere the new one.
Whenever i try to activate my webcam a message appears saying 'We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again.'
I know for a fact that my webcam is not in use by another program, and i can still use it to record footage and take pictures while using other software.
I really do not want to revert to an older version of messenger, so any other answer would be highly appreciated.
The instructions made my web cam work again!
