Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam
I'm running Windows XP. The camera and software installed fine. When I bring up the camera thru the control panel, the image displayed is great. Here's the problem. When I try to do live video with a messenger program such as AOL IM or MS Messenger, I can see myself in the lower left corner and my brother can see himself on his computer but neither of us can see each other. He doesn't have the problem with anyone else so I have to believe it's me. When I try to establish a video connection with him and he accepts, several seconds later I get an error message that says the connection cannot be made and there may be a firewall problem. I've disabled the router firewall, the Macafee firewall (it comes with Comcast, the ISP) and the Windows XP firewall. I still get the same error message. Any thoughts or suggestions on the problem?
Send this info to him also.
Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:
C. Windows Live Messenger:
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
