Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)
CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly. The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software. If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Open MSN Click 'Open Menu' From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup' Set your speakers Click 'Test' - if OK, move on. Set your mic as default Use the slider to set volume and test. Click 'Next' This takes you to the video setup Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN) Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture. Click 'Finish'
There are a few thing you can try: - reinstall the webcam drivers (and software) - reinstall MSN - use an older version of MSN - use a webcam sharing prorgam (like SplitCam or ManyCam) - check your network settings to make sure that MSN is allowed to pass the firewall (defined as an exception).
Make sure skype is configured to use the webcam mic as the communitcation mic, to do this on skype goto tools then options, then audio settings and in the drop down menu's make sure you have corerect communications devices selcted and turned up. hope this helps
You may have to into the MSN Video and Audio Configuration utility and make it use the mic built into the webcam. It may be looking for audio input from another source, if this is the case, it won't work from the Cam itself.
1. Go to Start\Settings\Control Panel\Sounds and Audio Devices
2. Click on the Audio Tab.
3. In the Sound Recording section section, verify that your webcam is selected as the default device.
4. Click on the Volumne button, and verify that the Microphone slider is moved all the way to the top, and that the checkbox is checked.
