Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 WIN-Blk Webcam
Although lifecam vx-1000 works fine with msn messenger it will not work with yahoo messenger although the box says it will work with other compatible messenger groups - could you please advise me how I can configure to make it work - thank you - john ps - I have tried firewall with proxy but made no difference - message either tells me I am not connected or that the server is busy
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!

I have a VX-1000 and use it regularly with Yahoo! Messenger.
The video works just fine for me as a webcam. (The audio is another matter. The VX-1000's microphone seems to override all the others on the system, which is highly annoying.)
I'm on an H-P laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium.
(I bought the VX-1000, because the built-in webcam on this laptop does NOT work....)
Hope this helps -- good luck!
