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.
Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)
CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly. 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.
Open MSN Click 'Open Menu' From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup' Set your speakers Click 'Test' - if OK, move on. Set your mic as default Use the slider to set volume and test. Click 'Next' This takes you to the video setup Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN) Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture. Click 'Finish'
There is a possibility that the webcam is not compatible with MSN Have you configured it to MSN ? Click 'Open Menu' Click 'Tools' Click 'Audio and Video set-up' Run the mic set up (if you have built-in mic) Click 'Next' Set webcam as default and make final adjustments in settings Click 'Finish'
yes it does work as a web cam.Simply load the drivers for that camera on your pc ,After your computer recognizes it by plugging the in usb cord and opening the view finder push the round little play button and wa-la you have a web cam.Go on to msn and try a video with your friends it works clear as a bell you do how ever need a mic separately i think.just use you normal head set with the mic on it.hope this helps

Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on Action. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting and follow the instructions.
let me know if you still have a problem
PLEASE don't forget to rate me
First of all, have you verified you are using latest version of MSN messenger. If so and the problem still exists, give one of the other instant messengers a try, say like YM or AIM or any number of others.
What exactly do you mean by ' seems to work '?? Can you see yourself in the cam using whatever software other then MSN that you may have on your computer.
