  5. To Chat, click on MESSENGER and then
  6. After make necessary settings, click on APPLY, then OK.
  7. Then click on MESSENGER and go to my WEBCAM ready to use.
  1. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.

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

You will probably have to delete the driver from the driver property page. Then reboot the computer. Then make sure there's no driver listed. Then select up the driver. Select that you have the driver. Find a driver. Install.

I was given just the camera. How can I actually use it with skpe?


I use skype and the program is free for web cams. Just go to www.skype.com and download their free software for web cams. They want you to set up a user name so fill out the form they post in order to use the webcam on skype. The software should find your webcam automatically and you then can add your freinds that use skype by sending them a request. After that you can call them or they can call you. A window will pop up when you get a skype call and you can accept or reject it.

I hope this helps you out.
