Question about Microsoft Windows Live Messanger
I just upgraded to the new messenger and now video chat isn't working properly. If I open a video chat, only my chat partner's pic changes to video and mine shows a webcam with an X... However, both my webcam and my chat partner's both show in my partner's pic, flickering back and forth between the two pics. Basically, my cam is working, but msn won't show it in the right place for me to see both sides of the video conversation.
I'm running Vista, and my cam is built in to my HP laptop. It was working perfectly fine in msn video chat before I upgraded to the newest version of live messenger.
Sorry, I cannot help with the flickering, but you shoud be able to work the webcam. Please rate me afterwards!
Step 1: The "Tools" menu of Windows Live Messenger
1. Recover Windows Live Messenger in our software if you do not have it yet.
2. Start the installation of the software.
3. Once this is done, go to the Tools menu software.
In this menu, two links are important in order to properly configure your camera:"Setting audio and video" and "Parameters of the webcam."This is the first that we will discuss first and foremost, the second used primarily to adjust the parameters of the image in the secondary stage but we are dealing with. Launch therefore setup wizard and click on "Next".

It is possible that you find in the menu several choices. That means you have several elements in your computer capable of transmitting sound, a dedicated card and your motherboard, for example. In this case, make sure to select well the correct input, what you quickly verify the test by loudspeakers.

Two remarks on the stage configuration. On the one hand, if your camera has no microphone, you must go through a device that you must annex plug into the pink on your sound card. On the other hand, if your mouse does not work, you may have selected the wrong input device sound. Take particular care in this setting and not leave this page only when the cursor s'agitera,
indicating that your voice is recognized by the software.
Step 4: Turning finally to the image
