Sony990X optical 20X Digital Zoom Camcorder problems

I use my camcorder to stream video through my PC. About 3 months ago, I unplugged it and moved it to another room. I'm guessing some of the settings were changed on accident. The picture looks great on the cam itself, but once it streams to a site online, the picture on the PC is stretched vertically, almost looks like a carnival mirror. Maybe something to do with the frame rate or???? Please help if you can. Thank you.

Samsung H200 Full HD Camcorder with 20x Optical Zoom. Sound works, but video freezes. Running with Vista on Dell Vostro 200. New video card ATI.

I have the same problem with the Samsung Camcorder we bought last week. Just plugged it in now and can hear everything fine but the image is static. Will check back to see if you get any pearls of wisdom.
