Question about AOL Instant Messenger
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 188.8.131.52.
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

icon on your computer desktop. If you do not have an instant messaging service,
you can sign up for a service from Yahoo, AOL, or Google through the URLs
included in the resource section of this article. For Yahoo and AOL, you can

Sign in to your IM service. Then, select the "My Webcam" icon
on the application menu to enable video chat in the service. When the webcam is
enabled, others will be able to see and here you when conducting a video chat
session on your Toshiba laptop.
