Green Screen on my webcam while using the video call on Skype

I am using skype to talk to someone over in Iraq and while talking to him, within a minute my end of the webcam turns green. I went under options and video settingg and the webcam is found and viewed fine. It is also a brand new Logitech webcam (Logitech QuickCam for Notebook Deluxe)- How can I fix the green screen so the other person can see me?

See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ )
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
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.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

How do I talk to someone on skype


1. First you must download the skype software and signup for a free account. You can do all of this at http://www.skype.com 2. You must make sure that you have a webcam, either built into your computer or a third party webcam that you bought in order to do video conferencing. If you want to do just voice, you need to make sure you have a mic. USB mics for $10 do a really good job and you can get them from any computer retail shop. 3. Once you sign up and make sure all the equipment is hooked up you need to search/find the person you want to skype with who has hopefully performed the same first 2 steps you have and sent you there username via email or some other method. 4. Once you find them through the skype built in search you should have an option to call that person, click on the icon that looks like a phone. 5. This should ring on the other persons computer and all they have to do is click on the answer button that pops up and you should be talking to each other.
Other than the signup and making sure you have a mic or webcam plugged into the computer all the steps can be done from within the skype software you downloaded above.
Hope this helps you on your way,
Good Luck.

I can hear the other person clearly, but they cannot hear me when I'm on google talk or Skype


are you on a desktop or laptop? if on a desktop sometimes there are multiple places to plug in your mic, make sure you have not only plugged it in the right port, AND checked to see how high your mic sensitivity is on the software side.

on skype, click TOOLS, OPTIONS, Audio settings and talk, if you see the green power meter lighting up then make sure to slide the sensitivity up, or check and uncheck the auto feature, depending on where you had it try this and see what you get. Also turn donw your speakers as if your speakers are getting a feedback loop or are hearing the other people talk louder than it can hear you then it wont work either.

How to talk to someone using the webcam


A good way of doing this is using an instant messenger, such as Skype or Yahoo Messenger. But the person on the receiving end also needs to be using the same application. My personal favorite is www.skype.com because it has a more reliable network. It is free to download and to create an account, and if your camera is correctly installed it will require virtually not setting up.

How do i turn on webcam on a acer 3690 laptop


The built in webcam is always on. You just have to run the application, 1) that was pre installed on it to take videos using it. and 2) while using an IM like Skype or Yahoo Chat etc. But they have to be configured to use it when you start a talk session with the other party. In Skype go to Tools->Options->Video. Here you can configure your webcam to startup when you are talking on Skype. And start video talk.

A video call can be heard but not seen on the other end.


You do not say if your brother only has the problem when talking to you.

Tell your brother to open Skype
Click 'Options'
Click 'Video settings'
Under 'Automatically receive video and screen sharing from...'
Make sure 'no one' is unchecked select 'anyone' for a trial.

Acer Crystaleye Webcam overheating my pc?


You need to try and find out what is going on.
Download "Speccy" a neat little piece of free software from the suppliers of Ccleaner. (Piriform)
I had a similar problem watching YouTube and 30 minutes later every thing froze.
Looking at speccy showed the video card overheating. Took the side off the desktop and the fan had failed.

My picture turns to "Green Screen" while video calling on Skype..


sometimes i get similar effects when i use skype or MSN my view goes yellow i think it is due to the age of the model of the webcam, so i recommend getting a better one. If the problem persists then maybe the graphics arent that good with the webcam or the software is dodgy. hope i helped!
