Webcam on a HP Mini with AIM

I am using AIM on my HP Mini. I can receive and send audio and receive video. However, I cannot send video.

I know the webcam works, it just is not being initialized or used by AIM.

I uninstalled and reinstalled AIM 6.8 plus I also went into setting and made sure the camera was set to USB Video Device

    Can you use the device outside of AIM? b/c it could be a driver issue.

DELL Studio 17 and AIM Webcam Problems


You probably have multiple video cameras and AIM has defaulted the wrong one

on AIM:
1. go to edit
2. settings
3. enhanced im
4. audio & video
5. camera
6. choose something other than default
7. apply
8. repeat 1-7 until the image appears

Help with receiving webcam on Live messenger.


Hi there.
Go here, download and install flash player >>>>>>

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoid=BUIGP

once installed shut down skype and open messenger, you should be able to view webcams from now on, the trick is to only use one at a time because only one program will take over the cam.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

This is not your fault, if their sound and their video is messed up then it is either the audio quality or it is because of their camera/audio setup. Hope I Helped!

HP webcam software downloaded,camera in port, now what?


Click "Tools" then "Audio & Video Setup". If it says your camera's working, then all should be well on your end. Then, if you want to connect to someone who also has a webcam, they also have to be set up to send and receive video and audio.

First think you have check is see your video on your computer, you dont how to see if you are using the windows xp operating system. goto my computer the see the web cam on the other device. double click the icon and then it shows the video of your's. If you cant see any icon on the My computer window. Then you have to see the My computer porperties.
there you can see the hardware tab and hardware settings and see the multimedia devices. see it is working properly.

you can't see after these changes of settings then you have to install the web cam software again on your computer.

inform if the prob comes again
