Can't use IM Video on Aim

I have the latest version of AIM and have a Dell XPS with a built in webcam and mic. When I try to Video IM or Audio IM I can't click on the button. And when I go to Enhanced IM, there are no webcam options. But on other screen names on the same computer the option is there. Thank you!

AIM VIDEO CHAT NOT WORKING


Make sure that you have only one application using the webcam. Eg. if you have the webcam working in yahoo it will not be accessable in AIM. Also try to uninstall and reinstall the most recent version of AIM.

My built-in mic won't work!


Have you tried going to control panel - sounds and audio devices - voice and then clicking "test hardware" this will tell you if it is the hardware or not, if it is you will need a new mic, if not there will be settings in AIM that are wrong.

The problem is not with your web cam its with your aim software. If you do not wish to go in deep settings of aim then I'd recommend you to uninstall your current version of aim and install an older version under circumstances you are using the latest version or else get the latest version. Version 6.9 is the latest. If you wish to configure your current aim software then here is the link kindly visit and correct your settings. http://help.aol.com/help/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=223350&sliceId=1&docTypeID=DT_AOLHOW_TO_1_1&dialogID=42119422&stateId=1%200%2040842282

AIM and Microsoft LifeCam 3000 audio issue


I actually used your question to solve this problem! My LifeCam was showing in the drop down boxes and I set the mic to the cam instead of default, closed and restarted AIM and it was working just fine after that. The problem is not with the LifeCam - it is with the AIM settings. Hope this helps

No sound when connected on aim


Is your microphone integrated into your webcam? Make sure the correct device is selected. Go into Edit, Settings, Enhanced IM. Under Audio and Video, make sure the Microphone device selected is a functioning mic, such as Logitech Mic, or if using a headset, select the USB headset (if usb) or your sound card if using a mic plugged into your built in or add-on sound card.

Logitech quickcam chat live video


Broadband will work better and smoother for sure. If the cam has a mic, then it would work for almost any chat system you can get. You will get both video and audio.
