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 shoud 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

LG Web Camera LIC-300


The QuickCam Connect is a brand of Web camera manufactured by Logitech. It is among the lowest-priced in the Logitech line of cameras, and it was developed to work exclusively with the Windows operating system. As a result, the Logitech Web site does not offer software that allows users to connect the webcam to a Macintosh computer. However, third-party software is available at no charge to enable you to use a QuickCam Connect with your Mac.

Plug your QuickCam Connect into an available USB port on the Macintosh. Navigate to the Macam download site, which is hyperlinked on the site or is available below. http://sourceforge.net/projects/webcam-osx/files/macam/0.9.2/macam.0.9.2.dmg/download Note: When you arrive at this download site, the application will immediately begin downloading onto your Macintosh. After the software has downloaded to your computer, it will automatically decompress and a disk drive icon will appear on your desktop. A dialog window will open in the Finder. The Macam application is pictured within the dialog window, and should be highlighted, then dragged to your applications folder. From the "Applications" folder, double-click on the Macam icon and open the program. Navigate back to the Macam dialog window that opened on your desktop after the application was downloaded from the Internet. Highlight and drag the "macam.component" to the "/Library/QuickTime/" folder. Use a simple video viewer to verify that the component is installed correctly. QuickCam Connect and iChat IChat is a popular instant messaging application that comes with the Macintosh OS. The software download that allows you to use a QuickCam Connect with your Mac needs another piece of software to be compatible with iChat. Unfortunately, this compatibility is not free. Navitage to Ecamm Network (see Below) and locate iUSBCam, a software application that will make iChat compatible with QuickCam Connect. http://www.ecamm.com/mac/iusbcam/ IUSBCam costs $9.95 as of January 2010. After purchasing the software, download and follow the installation steps that accompany the application. Help with installation and applications. http://sourceforge.net/projects/webcam-osx/forums/forum/145156

How do I unmute during ichat on my mac book pro


In iChat 4 and upwards the Video and Audio streams are on the same port.
This would make it virtually impossible to block one without blocking the other.
Just to double check
System Preferences > Sound > Input
Ideally this should have the Mic chosen and the volume set to make the blue bar get to at least 1/2 way (3/4s is better). It should not move so far that it bangs into the right hand end.
This will cause the OS software to "Clip" the Audio to prevent feedback - which means no input is made and you will hear nothing.
Next.
iChat > Preferences > Video section.
If there are two Inputs showing in System Preferences he will have a drop down
It should list the same device.
The green bar below the Video pic should also move (Although less than the blue bar did/does)
Headsets
If he is now using a Headset.
Change the iChat Option to anything but the headset mic.
Do the same in System Preferences > Sound > Input.
Now set System Preferences > Sound > Input "First"
And iChat > Microphone Drop Down "Last"
He may need to do this for an Output choice if it appears in iChat and in the System Preferences > Sound > Output.
He needs to be concerned with with getting Sound In to iChat as that is what you hear.
It is easy to think that it is Output as it goes over the internet to the Buddy.
More.
The Video Menu of iChat
In here the Microphone Enabled should be ticked
Selecting this items toggles the tick on or Off (And the Mic On or Off)
I would also check the View Menu
In here make sure the Show Audio Status is ticked.
This will show Audio icons next to the Buddies (Particularly if you deselect Show Video Status)
Show Video should allow Audio but it will not hurt to check.
In fact I would toggle the Microphone Enabled and both Show Statuses to make the App write the info to the .plist
Then try an Audio Only chat
You can do this from the Buddies menu (Or right clicking a Buddy) or by having Show Video Status Off.
Yet more.
I would also open the Connection Doctor from the Video menu at both ends during a chat
This will report the stats.
If his Bitrate is not stable then his audio may be effected.
iChat will try to cope with changes by Buffering the Video which means dropping frames which then means the audio is dropped as it will not be in sync.
You can try Limiting his Bandwidth in the Video Section of the Preferences to 500kbps
This will smooth out large variances when using Extremely fast services that vary.
500kbps is more than enough for a 4 way Video chat as Host but is a useful tool in iChat 5
If his Framerate also varies it will be a sure sign that his Internet speed is varying.
It may pay for you to drop your to 500kbps as well as hs end may be struggling to deal with high data loads from your end.
As a Last resort try both end at 200kbps (Anything below this will not Video)
Change one end at a time and keep an eye on the Connection Doctor to see when the end that has changed has settled. The Buffering will smooth out the change.

URGENT MY ICHAT VIDEO CHAT IS NOT WORKING


If you are using VMware Fusion at the same time that you get the problem then it is Fusion. Check by shutting down Fusion then trying the iChat. If it works fine then it's definitely Fusion that is interrupting it.

With internet sharing off as you describe the next thing is to make sure that it is also not sharing the iSight itself. When fusion is running but not windows itself, check the configuration of your windows bootable in Fusion. (You'll have to excuss me a bit as I havn't used Fusion for a bit since switching over to Parallels) Check to see if the iSight is listed among the USB devices.

If it's not there load up windows and check which devices are connected there from the main Fusion Menu or the little icons on the Fusion Status bar. If it's not, double check by right clicking on MyComputer and choosing properties then go to Device Manager and then looking in there for any USB camera devices. If it is, right click and disable it.

See if any of that helps.

All the best

No video when using quickcam pro 9000 on google chat (gchat)


I had this problem but I fixed it. The google chat uninstaller does not uninstall everything. Go to the hidden folder Application Data of the default or local user in the Documents and Settings folder of the C drive, you will find the plugin folder for google chat. Delete it and then reinstall the plugin and it will work.
C:\Documents and Settings\Joe\Application Data

Webcam does not show on web chat


Normal 0 Bring up Skype and Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional information to setup video.
