Normal 0 See section C. Windows LiveMessenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your familyand friends so they have there computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up tobroadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/)set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able tosee and her to you.

C. Windows LiveMessenger:

  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.
NOTE: Your audio andvideo should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly soyou can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

The webcam which is integral to the computer doesnt seem to be working on msn its as if there is no webcam help please?


This is just a proposal.
The first ting i wold do is to make shore the best driver for the camera i installed
when this is in order i wold try to install msn again by doing it like this:
First download and make shore you have the newest version of MSN.
Uninstall ( if possible) MSN.
Install the new MSN when the integrated camera is working properly.
MSN should find the camera by it self i believe.
In Control panel choose System; Device Manager.
Right click mouse over Camera.
Chose properties and then Update driver.

Works perfect on laptop doesn't work on desktop computer


Solution

I think this is a driver issue. So make sure that if for instance you have VISTA on your other system and it worked fine with vista whereas on the home you got XP and you expected it to work tough luck! You got to make sure that you installed the proper driver for the OS. If you do not have this on the CD which came with it go to the lifecam vx3000 site and downlaod the driver suitable for your OS.


If still no luck with this I think I know what might solve the issue

1. Uninstall the webcam driver (from control panel ... add / remove hardware find webcam and remove)
2. Uninstall yet another time MSN Messenger
3. Disable any other webcam that you might have from the device manager as you didnt say if the you already got another webcam on home pc.
4. Download tunieup utilities install trial and run registry cleaner ... clean the whole registry for 2 - 3 times until its perfectly clean. Install the new driver you just downloaded
5 . Reboot
6. Install MSN Messenger
7. Reboot

How much memory do you have installed in your computer? I beleive you need to install more memory so the camera will work. This is a common problem with computer that don't have enough memory.

Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the camera to freeze up the computer or the camera.
First I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer. It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
