Question about Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Webcam
The ebcam works fine normally like when taking a picture and recording a video. But on windows live mesenger (MSN) it simply shows a black screen with some static.
I HAVE THE ANSWER FOR THE NEW WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER!!
at the top of Windows live messenger, u will see your name, and 'personal message'
if u go below that, you will see something saying: 'search contacts of the web' beside that u will see a gray person with a green PLUS on them.beside that there will be 2 'pictures' .
then...beside that you will see a ICON of a 'drop list' with a 'cursor' over it. CLICK ON THIS
a menu will drop down...
then....hover over 'tools'
then click on: "audio and video setup..."
check your speaker and microphone are working...click NEXT from the drop down list select the right webcam.
THEN click 'finish'
AND YOUR DONE!
then, to 'video call'...open up a chat window with whom u wish to call
click on VIDEO CALL

In msn live messenger, go to "tools" and "webcam definitions". in the new window that appears, you'll see "cam selection", verify if your cam is available there and choose it. then it's just to adjust the cam defitions and it will be working.
remember: if the cam is being used by another program (ManyCam, quickCam, etc), you'll need to select it as image suplier as the pc makes.

Make sure Webcam is selected as the video input source in the software
you are trying to use. The various software programs that can use the
webcam use different terms for describing a video source and the option
to select it can vary. Usually, camera, webcam, or video settings can
be found in the preferences or properties pages for the software that
uses the webcam.
NOTE: If you have trouble finding where you can change the video source setting, try using the software's built-in help system. If your PC includes a TV tuner, often the TV tuner is the default video input device. So, for example, if you are using Windows Live Messenger to have a video chat with your webcam, you need to select the HP Pavilion Webcam as the active input device because the TV tuner is the active video input device by default.
