See if this camera works with moviemaker that should be in your computer already the software config needs to point to it to. Make sure the device manager has it there too.

MY WEBCAM DOESN'T SHOW IN MY MSN


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.

http://www.testmycam.com/

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'

My Microsoft LifeCam Wont detect on MSN!


Once you have your webcam working outside of MSN you can then proceed to configure it to the MSN software

Its good practice to disconnect / re-connect the camera to the USB port before you start. Sometimes the camera remains hooked up to a previous program and the MSN software cannot find it.

Connect webcam
Open MSN - Windows Live Messenger
Click ( > ) Open Menu > Tools > Audio & video set-up - run through Audio > Next - set your camera default - assess webcam quality and use the Webcam Settings to make any refinements > Finish

I have a dell laptop and i have a bulit in webcam, i go on msn and my cam wont show when i'm trying to have a video call with someone...i need my cam to work on msn, how do i show it on msn ?


Open the MSN messenger program and click Tools and Options and there should be an option somewhere on there that allows you to choose your webcam.

If that doesn't work, check Start--> and right click on My computer, then click Manage.

Under there click Device manager and verify there is nothing that has a Yellow exclamation point next to it. If so that means that the drivers are not installed and we will have to reinstall them to make the computer recognize the webcam

Recheck Audio and Video settings.

Normal 0 Normal 0 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 set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. 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:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You 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.
Hope this helps. Bud
