Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Omegle video chat doesnt work on my laptop at home, but when i took the laptop to a friends house, it worked. I then tried it with my mom's laptop at home, and it worked. by "doesn't work" i mean that the stranger can't see me and i can't see them, but i can see myself. Skype works, and so does chatroulette. Please can someone help?

    I can see myself, the camera is working fine its not the drivers, or allowing it to use my camera. Only 1 in about 30 people can see me and I can see them.

You have changed the wifi/ ether / web setting for camera and this is why when you go to another place and use it. it works check the settings on the camera there will be a rest panel on the setting press this and see if that helps you problem.

SOURCE: mic not working

The cause of a Web Cam's microphone to stop working can be either a hardware issue or a result from incorrect configurations.
Recommendations:
Determine whether it is a hardware problem by testing the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
We also recommend using the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
Additional Information:
Multimedia keyboards that have the ability to control your computer volume may have software that can interfere with your webcamera's sound. If you have a Multimedia keyboard with volume control, the keyboard's software may need to be uninstalled in order for the camera's microphone to work properly in Windows.

SOURCE: Logitech quickcam - Skype -video and audio don't work

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

SOURCE: Whenever I try to use my webcam, LifeCam VX-1000,

Sounds like your webcam driver is either disabled or corrupted. Go to Control Panel, hardware, Devices and look for your webcam. Go through the tabs to make sure it is Enabled. If you don't see your webcam, or you can't click enable, then you will need to reload the software drivers, either from disc or the manufacturer's website. Once you think you have it working you may want to reboot your computer, and then try the free webcam test tool to verify.

My tv works at my friend house, but doesn't work in my apartment. However all other electrical devices work at my apartment, model is (SLED5000)


Sounds strange indeed. All other devices; except the TV works fine with all power sockets at your house!! Just replace the power pin, at the end of the TV power cord and check. There is nothing more to check for you. It it too do not help you, contact any service technician. Electro help

Router blocking incoming connections to online games/anonymous video chatting


You may need to reset your router once. You will see a reset button at back of your router so all you need is to keep holding it for 10 seconds then
unplug the power jack for like 1 min and then your device shall be reset then reconfigure it again.

It seems that Facebook is having a problem with your profile. If you haven't changed any of your settings then that shouldn't be the problem and plus I doubt that. I believe that your profile may be just having technical problems. Contact Facebook (look for "Help" on either the home page usually on the way bottom or under a side bar) or wait it out. Sometimes patience fixes everything. But I highly recommend just contacting Facebook if everything else fails...they should help. If not...keep waiting.
Hope that helps ^_^

Connecting laptop to a friend's netgear


You can have your friend log into the router with their laptop and check the setting in the router. Of course, your friend will need to remember what his password is for the router as well. If he doesnt remember that, then the only solution is to reset the router to the default.

Hello sandeep

Since the problem here is compatiability issue. Suggestion: why dont you try other video chat programs. Skype is also good for video chatting and free to use. If all doesnt work you should consider asking for a replacement.

Best of luck
