Question about Veo Mobile Connect Webcam

1 Answer

Webcam won't work with Skype

I can see the person at the other end but they can't see me.
I have tried different versions of Skype, same problem.
When in tools/options/video settings, the video set up button doesn't make anything happen, as though it doesn't recognise there is a camera attached.
The camera works when checked in my computer/scanners & cameras.

See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.

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

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your 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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. This is a known issue with the latest version of Skype. The latest version of Skype won't run on Mac pc so you need to download the older version of skype. Please uninstall the Skype program on on you Mac and download the older version on the link below.

You cannot open the application Skype because it is not supported on this architecture is an error caused by Skype and not by the webcam.

I see person I call but they cannpt see me, only still picture can be seen. I printed the users guide and tried every thing..I am on Skype.


Try making sure you both have the same version of Skype. Sometimes an older version of Skype can also help.
Another thing to check is the DirectX version on both ends, as it is used for video rendering.
Some more ideas on how to fix webcam problems can maybe help as well.

Skype comes up and says my camera is not supported.


  • Extract from Skype Help
  • "Most PC-compatible webcams should work with Skype, although some older models may not. Make sure you download and install the most recent drivers for your webcam (you can get these from the webcam manufacturer’s site). Or, you can buy a webcam that’s guaranteed to work seamlessly with Skype from the Skype Shop.
  • Make sure both you and the person you are video calling are using the latest version of Skype. To check what version you have, click Help > About Skype.
  • Please check that your computer hardware configuration supports video calls – the recommended system requirements are a 1 GHz CPU, 512MB RAM, a video card with at least 16MB of memory and a 512/256kbit (down/up) broadband internet connection.
  • Check that your video device supports DirectShow 9.1 standard (WDM is currently not supported).
  • Make sure that you have the latest version of DirectX. You can download DirectX if you need it. After installing it, please go to Start > Run and type dxdiag. In the window ensure you have DirectX9.0c or higher. Sometimes the installation fails to update the version and in these cases please contact Microsoft for support."

Skype


A few suggestions... as the problem can be anything at this point.

1. Do you have a firewall? Is the firewall blocking skype from receiving video? (http://www.skype.com/help/guides/firewalls/)

2. Do you and the other caller have the latest version of skype? Same version for each of you.

3. Check the other callers configurations. As he/she might be able to preview themselves in the "Preview Window" for their webcam but he/she might not be sending video to you.
