Microphone does not work with MS Messenger using firewire

Hi,
I have the latest version of MS messenger with Video conferencing enabled running on Windows XP on a media PC.
I connected my Canon GL2 using firewire and downloaded Canon's DV Messenger from the Canon website.
The image works fine and tested with a friend but the microphone does not work.  I cannot get microphone signal on the Messenger setup wizard.  When using video editing software everything works fine.  I noticed that Messenger does not recognize 'Canon DV camera' while other software does.
Any help will be highly appreciated.

Why my pc cant display instant IM from yahoo messenger


Your problem is with Internet Explorer - even if you do not use it and have another browser set as default. IE plays an unseen but essential part in the operation of Yahoo Messenger
Keep your IE updated - the latest version is 8 for Vista and XL
You may have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.
To enable scripting:
Launch IE
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK
Restart IE

Still not working ? Update software

After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts
Start / control panel / programs
delete any old versions

Sounds like you have a problem with your Messenger support software. This software is required to allow the Messenger program to function and is NOT downloaded with Messenger.

Check you have scripting enabled in Internet explorer
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable

You may have downloaded a version which does not support this feature or you are cross chatting between programs ( Yahoo Messenger to Windows Live Messenger or Yahoo Mail for example ) and the option will be grayed out or missing signifying it is not available.

I already tried a new accnt but still my messages disappear when i press enter to send


This error is most likely from yahoo. Their system has been acting up recently. Try using their messenger for the web instead. www.messenger.yahoo.com/web

You will be required to run an audio setup wizard through the messenger application in order for MSN or Windows Live Messenger to recognize sound using a microphone and produce sound through speakers, headphones, or headsets.
The information in this article will describe the correct procedure to setup audio and video within the MSN or Windows Live Messenger application to achieve proper audio functionality.
trnsp.gif Answer The information in this article applies to the following 3rd party software
MSN Messenger 6.x
MSN Messenger 7.x
Window Live Messenger 8.5


The information in this article applies the following platforms
Windows 98
Windows ME
Windows 2000
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Note: The information in this article is not product specific. For details regarding camera driver and operating system support please see article 3428

Step 1: Getting Started
Before we begin setting up the sound in MSN or Windows Live Messenger, ensure the following is complete:
  • Connect your camera and verify that it is working properly
  • If using headphones, verify that your device is connected and functioning
  • If using speakers, verify that they are functioning properly
  • If using a headset, verify that both the headphone and microphone are connected and working properly.


Step 2: Executing the audio and video setup procedure within the messenger application
This procedure will allow you to assign an audio input and audio output device, as well as assigning the video device of your choice to work with the messenger application. The following example uses Windows Live Messenger 8.5 however, the same procedure can be used for earlier versions of MSN Messenger 6.x and above. MSN Messenger users please skip directly to step 4 below.
Note to Windows Live Messenger users: There are multiple ways to execute the following steps depending on being signed in vs signed out of the messenger application, and which version of Windows Live Messenger is being used. To avoid confusion, please execute the following steps while signed out. We also recommend updating to the latest version of Windows Live Messenger.
1. Sign out of your account.
2. Launch the messenger application (make sure you are not signed in to your account).
3. Locate and click the "Help" drop down button towards the top right corner and select "Show the menu bar"
16480.gif 4. Now click the "Tools" option in the menu bar and select the “Audio and Video Setup” option.

5. Click “Next to begin the setup process.

6. In the “Speaker Setup” window, select the output device you would like to use with the messenger application. This step is specific to speakers or headphones. If your speakers or headphones are USB devices and connected to your computer, select the device by using the drop down menu provided. If your speakers or headphones are connected to your soundcard, the device listed will be the make or model of your soundcard device.
You can also set the desired volume level and click “Play Sound” for an audio sample. Click "Next" once you are comfortable with the your selected options.

7. In the “Microphone Setup” window, select your desired input device from the drop down menu provided.
3172_msnad04.jpg This selection will be specific to a microphone connected to your computer. If your Logitech video camera has a built-in microphone, this option will be presented as “Logitech Mic” with your camera model name in parentheses as shown above.
If you have an external USB microphone or headset device connected to your computer that hosts a microphone, select the devices name or model number in the drop down menu. If your external microphone or headset is connected to your soundcard, the device listed will be the make or model of your soundcard device. Once your device is selected, adjust the microphone volume level to your preference and click next.
Note: The microphone volume level may need to be tested in order to find a comfortable volume level. As a starting point, try setting the level midway and adjust when necessary by re-executing this procedure.

8. In the “Webcam Setup” window, select the video device you would like to use with messenger application. Once selected, you should see a display sample in the window provided. You can also click the “Options” button to make camera specific adjustments. Once completed, click the “Finish” button to apply your changes.

Once you have completed this process, the messenger application should now be configured to the correct audio input (microphone), audio output (speakers or headphones), and video device (webcam) to use when engaging in an audio and or video conversation.
