It wont work on yahoo or msn

Normal 0 Here is one for Yahoo Messenger.

Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. What Messenger are you using? I'll assume that you are using YAHOO MESSENGER and I'll walk you through the setup. All Messengers and Skype have an Audio & Video setup in them so the camera and microphone work properly with their program.
Bring up Yahoo Messenger and on the top left click on MESSENGER.
Then click on "Messenger Preferences."
Next in Category click on "Calling & Devices."
When that comes up check and check to see that Microphone is set to your audio card.
Next insure that the speakers are set to you audio card.

Then go to "Test Audio "In the Blue print, "Open the call setup Assistant" When the window opens follow the instructions. When finished your camera audio should function properly.

Also you need to go to the Video setup and do the same so it will broadcast the pictures.

You probably already know how to setup Messenger's but if you don't, hope this helps. Bud

Microsoft web cam

I had a MYRIAD of problems when I first got mine. I took it back after spending ENDLESS HOURS trying to tweak it.

It was the device itself; I traded it for another (same model; same everything). The first one was just a lemon. The second one has worked like a champ.

Will not work with yahoo

My Lifecam vx- 1000 wasn't working on Yahoo messenger initially. After hours of researching i came across the solution that worked for me.

In "properties" limit the USB bandwidth used - by unchecking "Auto" in configuration and decreasing the speed manually (bring it down from 6mbps to 3).

This is what worked for me, hope this helps!
