IM live video chat issue

I have an HP pavillion dv6000 laptop with built a built in webcam. I use YouCam2 software. When I try to use IM live video chat via AIM by buddy sees my picture and hears me however she claims that my video freezes after about 10 seconds into the session and moves only every 5 minutes or so. I see my image and it is working fine.

I ran the recommended HP tests viewing my video using quickplay/checking drivers and all check out fine.

We both have broadband - I have comcast and she has satellite. I am using AIM 6.18.14.6.

I understand there was a past problem with AIM and HP Pavillion built in webcams and I saw a fix version 6.1 however no fix seems to exist with this version.

What would cause my image to freeze and is there a fix out there for this type of issue.

My operating system is Vista Service pack 1. Any advise or help in resolving this problem would be greatly appreciated

At this stage I would say that the problem is with her system - You do not say what countries you are in but a free download/upload checker might prove this

    Everyone's talking about how their's a built-in-webcam in our hp pavillion dv6000's laptop? is this true? if so, how do i get it to work? thanks!


    Some DV6000 have web cams other's don't. It all depends on the model you have and if there is actually one in the housing. I have seen people who have DV6000 that did not come with one, change out the lid with one that did have a camera and just plug in the camera plug and download the camera software and it will fire right up. If your dv6000 has a camera, go to the HP website...here... http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

    Put your units model number in the box and choose to go to the driver page. The web cams on DV6000 use the Cyberlink Youcam software and drivers for activation, and will work on most messengers and they also come with tutorials to guide you through the process.

    How do I use the built in webcam for a video in a phone conversation


    You'll need to use a software that has video conferencing capabilities. There are some that are specific to video meetings like oovoo or you can use IM software. I know that Yahoo Chat allows for video chatting, I've done this on my HP laptop with my sister. Facebook has a video link option, I've never used that one though so I don't know if it allows you to record using Facebook or if you have to upload a video already recorded.

    Web cam wont turn on for video chat on AOL IM or skype


    Look at the task tray where the clock is. Look for a icon that looks like a webcam. Is there one?
    If there isnt one you will need to install the Drivers and software that came with your webcam.
    If you cant find it, reply with the brand and model number

    If the webcam drivers are installed, you should be able to find it listed under Imaging Devices.

    If not, you should find it listed as USB Webcam under Universal Serial Bus Controllers in the Device Manager.

    However, first of all, you can try installing the webcam preview application which can be downloaded from the link below :

    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe

    Download and install the application after which you should get a icon to access and find if the webcam of the Notebook is working or not..

    Please be informed that if you install a retail version of Operating System in your Notebook, you will loose the Preinstalled Quick Play application with which you should be able to use the webcam.

    However, you can try using Cyberlink Youcam application that is provided with all the latest HP Notebooks for using the Webcam with and can be downloaded from the link below :

    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39372.exe

    Save and double click the file to install the application.

    Try the instructions available in the link below to test the webcam using youcam application :
