    I don't think Legitech is up to speed with Microsft. they don't have the software for 9.0 yet. you may have to wait a month of so for Logitech to update their software.

So in other words, you are effectively setting up "your own" live streaming broadcasts either video, audio(such as internet radio) or both from your PC without using the likes of Skype, Yahoo, IM etc.

o RGB 24 (recommend)
o I420
o IYUV

Under “Output Size”, choose one of the following:
o 160 x 120
o 320 x 240
Note: If one of the options above isn’t in the list, then your webcam is not compatible.

Yahoo messenger - Webcam is not connected


You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.
