I have a hp deluxe webcam model KQ246AA. When I try to have a video call with Skype, It doesn't work , Says unknown video error or sometime it has said camera is in use by another application????


Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.(webcam not found or webcam in use elsewhere error messages)
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

HP KQ246AA 8.0MP Deluxe Webcam not working on skype. It keeps saying there is a video error-the video might be in use by another application or program. Except there isn't any other application that is...


Sometimes webcam software can still be hooked up on a previous program where it was being used, even if the program was correctly exited.
Just reboot your webcam software by unplugging the webcam from the USB port for a couple of seconds
Re-check your settings
  1. Start Skype.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
  4. Select your webcam as the default microphone. ( If it has a built in mic )
  5. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
  6. Select your webcam as the default Webcam.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Test LifeCam by making a Skype test call.

Thanks for your offers to rendering further assistance. I think, however, that I have already spent far too much time on this uninteresting matter and I am sorry having bothered you. I will just leave it unsolved. I am glad I got to know FixYa so I know where to go next time there is a problem.

The information in this article applies to the following 3rd party software
MSN Messenger 6.x
MSN Messenger 7.x
Window Live Messenger 8.5


The information in this article applies the following platforms
Windows 98
Windows ME
Windows 2000
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Note: The information in this article is not product specific. For details regarding camera driver and operating system support please see article 3428
Step 1: Getting Started
Before we begin setting up the sound in MSN or Windows Live Messenger, ensure the following is complete:
  • Connect your camera and verify that it is working properly
  • If using headphones, verify that your device is connected and functioning
  • If using speakers, verify that they are functioning properly
  • If using a headset, verify that both the headphone and microphone are connected and working properly.


Step 2: Executing the audio and video setup procedure within the messenger application
This procedure will allow you to assign an audio input and audio output device, as well as assigning the video device of your choice to work with the messenger application. The following example uses Windows Live Messenger 8.5 however, the same procedure can be used for earlier versions of MSN Messenger 6.x and above. MSN Messenger users please skip directly to step 4 below.
Note to Windows Live Messenger users: There are multiple ways to execute the following steps depending on being signed in vs signed out of the messenger application, and which version of Windows Live Messenger is being used. To avoid confusion, please execute the following steps while signed out. We also recommend updating to the latest version of Windows Live Messenger.
1. Sign out of your account.
2. Launch the messenger application (make sure you are not signed in to your account).
3. Locate and click the "Help" drop down button towards the top right corner and select "Show the menu bar"
16480.gif 4. Now click the "Tools" option in the menu bar and select the “Audio and Video Setup” option.

6. In the “Speaker Setup” window, select the output device you would like to use with the messenger application. This step is specific to speakers or headphones. If your speakers or headphones are USB devices and connected to your computer, select the device by using the drop down menu provided. If your speakers or headphones are connected to your soundcard, the device listed will be the make or model of your soundcard device.
You can also set the desired volume level and click “Play Sound” for an audio sample. Click "Next" once you are comfortable with the your selected options.

7. In the “Microphone Setup” window, select your desired input device from the drop down menu provided.

If you have an external USB microphone or headset device connected to your computer that hosts a microphone, select the devices name or model number in the drop down menu. If your external microphone or headset is connected to your soundcard, the device listed will be the make or model of your soundcard device. Once your device is selected, adjust the microphone volume level to your preference and click next.
Note: The microphone volume level may need to be tested in order to find a comfortable volume level. As a starting point, try setting the level midway and adjust when necessary by re-executing this procedure.

8. In the “Webcam Setup” window, select the video device you would like to use with messenger application. Once selected, you should see a display sample in the window provided. You can also click the “Options” button to make camera specific adjustments. Once completed, click the “Finish” button to apply your changes.
