SOURCE: No video when using quickcam pro 9000 on google chat (gchat)

I had this problem but I fixed it. The google chat uninstaller does not uninstall everything. Go to the hidden folder Application Data of the default or local user in the Documents and Settings folder of the C drive, you will find the plugin folder for google chat. Delete it and then reinstall the plugin and it will work.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:

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.

Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should 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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.

Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.

The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.

Hope this helps. Bud

I have a sony vaio with built in web cam and windows 7 but i cant use the web cam . why is that?


Are you using the Sony Webcam companion? If not ou can download the application from Sony Vaio website. ( Sony Web Cam Companion ). If you are trying to use skype or any other video messaging software: Try to check if there are other video chat application running in the background of your computer. Open the system configuration utility (Windows key + R > msconfig ) then go to the Startup Tab. Uncheck all application that is related to video chat and leave the preferred video chat software active (checked). Restart the computer and viola! You can now use your webcam for video chat.

I have a distorted picture and Windows XP is my oS?


Logitech
1) Clean the lens
2) Launch the Logitech toolbar. Open the Video Effect menu (2 theatre masks) and make sure no video effects are applied
2) Check your DirectX
3) If thats OK uninstall the Logitech Software and re-install

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to check the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.
Run through the tabs checking the notes

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

I have a microsoft HD Lifecam and during playback of recorded videos, sometimes the audio and video are not in sync. we have new PC's with 4gb running win xp. doesn't happen all the time. any thoughts ?...


The problem isn't your webcam, it is the software that is recording it. The software is separating the video stream and the audio stream. Look for a software package that records in Flash, which combines the streams.

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 says to close other video streaming application before it can proceed but there are no applications open


I have an answer! I've tried many times to fix this problem on my laptop, even talking to two dell reps in the process(which was worthless). Finally I found the problem(for me, at least)- my webcam's driver was not compatible. If you haven't tried this already, go to your Device Manager, click the plus sign next to Imaging Devices, and select Integrated Webcam. Right click that and select Update Driver Software. I downloaded the latest driver it found and restarted my computer, and miraculously my webcam central was back to normal. I hope this helps you too!
