Question about Macally IceCam Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

Can't seem to get it to work with MSN, Yahoo, or Skype??


Hi all, 
I just purchased Ice Cam for my Apple Ibook G4. I installed all the software and restarted my computer so it would recognize my web cam.
I am able to view the 'monitor video' so the cam works. However, when I got on Yahoo messenger the video froze up and on MSN it did not even recognize it altogether.
I am already considering taking it back, since a webcam should be as simple as 'plug n' play' to setup.
I would appreciate some help with this. Thanks.

Your cam also needs setup on your messaging program

yahoo cam setup
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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
let me know if this helped

I cant acces my logitec to do a video call,i just plug it,how do i link it with my pc


Hi,

First step is to know if you have installed the software completely. Once you have done it, Click on Video Call or Webcam option from any chat or software application like Yahoo, MSN or Skype to launch the Video.

My Suggestion would be to run the logitech cam disk you received with the cam and uninstall it. Restart the PC and reinstall it. it should work fine.

Regards,
Shawn

How do i fix the cam to my laptop @ get it to work


Hi,

First step is to run the disk that came along with the webcam.
Through the installation, you will be asked to connect the cam.
IF you don't get the screen to connect, continue the installation and complete it.
Later connect the cam and it should be ready to use.

You can use the cam using any chat application like Yahoo, msn, Skype.


Follow the steps below if you do not have the disk
Click on the link below and download the drivers for your Cam.
Windows XP and Vista Cam Drivers

Alternate link to download the drivers -

You need to run download the software and run the downloaded file to install

My web cam wont work


No, most likely some resident software is accessing the camera, or the camera needs updated drivers. try updating to the newest software and make sure the cam software isnt booting up before the MSN client

Gmail does not support video as far as I know. To chat with your friend over Yahoo you need to download the Yahoo Instant Messenger software. Others use the Microsoft Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger. Skype is another popular Instand Messenger program.
