Hi, I purchased the 'Logitech quickcam deluxe for notebooks'. The software and everything downloaded fine on my comp, and when I tested it out, I could see myself. However, when I tried doing a video chat on MSN, it did not work. So I found and downloaded a program called 'Logitech IM video companion' This fixed my problem and my contact could see me. But when I tried a video chat with another contact, it did not work.I could see myself in my own little video chat window, but they could not see me. It only showed an image of a webcam with an x (the usual indication that I did not have a webcam. Though they could hear me. Please help me!

somewhere on the cam there is a model number. easiest way is to google logitech then the model number and navigate your way to their support section. If your still having trouble let me know what the model number is and we'll get you squared away
I have installed software, web Cam works fine.
Down loaded SKYPE ,but when speaking with another person ,I could see them and hear them OK, but they were unable to see me although sound communication was fine. Is this a web cam setting problem or Skype problem.
Check your camera in the QuickCam software. If your camera works properly in the QuickCam software, then this issue is specific to Yahoo Messenger. Make sure you have the correct version of the Messenger installed for your OS. Also make sure that the camera driver is the correct driver for your OS.
If the issue persists, then I'm afraid you'll have to contact Yahoo Messenger support for a resolution.
