Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam

1 Answer

I've had no success in getting my logitech web cam to accept Skype. I tried for two hours yesterday. When I reboot, I'm back to square one: Skype telling me that it doesn't recognize my Logitech quickcam. My anti-virus (CA) may be blocking key components. Well, I can't and won't suspend my anti-virus program. Please advise. I have a $75 dollar webcam I can't use.

This reminds me when I had the same problem when Skype version 4 came out and it loaded so fast the webcam software was not in place and Skype could not detect the webacam.
The workaround was to right click and exit Skype and restart it but others on the Skype community chose to go back to an older version of Skype.
I'm surprised if its the same problem still as several updates have been made since then I thought it would have been patched - I am now on the latest version

I have skype and my brother has a logitech quickcam, can he call me on my skype? are they compatitable


You both need to download Skype and configure your webcams to that program

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.

Not working ? - troubleshoot your drivers and software - get your cam working before moving on

Working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE 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.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

When he tries to install his webcam he will be notified if its not compatible - this usually means updating to the latest software

Tried three different web cams, all new. Download fine. Icon appears but when I try to open camera, a pop up appears centre screen saying " This application in use ". Cannot get round this problem. Help??


If the logitech toolbar has been successfully downloaded the problem may be either the webcam software needs rebooting ( unplug it from the USB port and plug it back in after a few seconds ) or you may have some sort of software conflict with another program on your computer.
