Question about GE MiniCam Pro HO98756 Webcam
I have a GE MiniCam Pro 98756 The new Windows Live Messenger version 2009 won't let me run a set up for audio/video for this cam. However, the icon of an available cam appears on the chat window. When I try to start a video conference I get the following error: Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70013)
When I want to show my cam I get the following error: We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again.
When I go to
See section C. Windows LiveMessenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your familyand friends so they have there computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up tobroadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe 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 tosee and her to you.
C. Windows LiveMessenger:
Go to thissite http://download.live.com/?sku=messengerand download Windows Live Messenger.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly soyou can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hopethis helps. Bud
