Question about Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000 Webcam
I have installed all the new Vista drivers for my Lifecam NX-6000, but cannot get the Video Effects (packaged with the Lifecam) to work with Skype. I am sure that last night I had the video effects working with Skype, but now they will only work with Windows Messenger.
Just wondered if anybody has had the same trouble or has been able to rectify this?
When Skype uses the Lifecam, an icon named "Microsoft LifeCam Dashboard"(it looks like a round blue button) shows up in the System Tray (lower right corner of the desktop). Click the icon to pop up the dashboard.

See section C. Windows Live
Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have there computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
