Re: Avatars

Your webcam may not support the avatars or other effects. You can use free software to do this called manycam from:

My logitech system got erased from my computer. When I reinstalled it, there are no more special effects like the "fun filters". How can I get that back on?

Either go to the Logitech site and search for fun filters or Google for Logitech Fun Filters download, and see what comes up, that should do the trick.

Logitech Effects / Avatars not working under Windows XP

If you are using Windows XP, and have tried to use the avatars or effects on a Logitech 4000 (and most other Logitech cameras) and the green arrow is 'grayed out', this is what is wrong:

Some of those 'speed up your computer' programs tend to disable un-needed services which run in the background of Windows.

Unfortunately, Logitech software needs one of these services to run in order for the avatars and effects to work correctly. Even Logitech themselves don't know why it needs this service running, but it does!

Keep in mind, this is a tip for Windows XP!

To make sure the needed service is running:

1. Click 'START', and go into 'CONTROL PANEL'


2. Once in control panel, click on 'Administrative Tools':


3. In Administrative tools, click on 'Services':


4. Scroll down to the 'Terminal Services'. (the screenshot shows Indexing Service):


5. If you see that 'Terminal Services' is disabled, that's your problem!

6. Highlight 'Terminal Services' and right click on it. Choose 'Properties'.

7. Change the 'Startup Type' to 'Automatic'.


8. Click 'Apply', then 'OK'.

9. Close out of the services menus.

Restart computer, and enjoy your avatars!

I just bought my Microsoft Lifecam and it has many cool effects such as "Ladybug", "Fall", "Aquarium"...ETC. But, the webcam does not have color effects such as "Sepia", or "Distorting." I am not looking...

Copy this site and paste it in your browser address bar and hit ENTER.

to your web browser and paste it in the Address Bar and hit ENTER.
Then download the program and install it to start having fun with your camera and friends.

Manycam allows you to use your Webcam with multiple programs at the same time. Broadcast your
Webcam on MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, Skype, AIM, Paltalk, and Camfrog all simultaneously. Manycam
also allows you to add cool live CGI (computer generated special effects and graphics) to your
Webcam. Make it appear as if your face or hand is on fire with our "fire" effect.
Pretend you are underwater or make it look like it's snowing inside your house with the
Manycam underwater and snow effects. Add text, graphics, or your country's flag to your video

ManyCam is the freeware tool for you if you use both CamFrog and ICQ, or any other video chat
program, and you want to use them simultaneously. It creates a "virtual" Webcam that
replicates your currently installed camera. It then lets multiple applications
access the video stream without conflict.

ManyCam is compatible with Yahoo, MSN, CamFrog, PalTalk, ICQ, Skype, YouTube, and more. Once
you've installed ManyCam, you need to set ManyCam as the primary input for program that you
want to use. ManyCam will automatically start when you activate your Webcam through that
program. The application includes a bunch of gimmicky features that let you change aspects of
the background and foreground. You can map a new pair of cartoon eyes over your face, and they
track pretty well to your movements, or you can show that your life is hell by replacing the
background with flames.

NOTE: There is an unfortunate toolbar that will install unless you opt out during setup, but
other than that ManyCam is worthy of a Webcam Oscar for cool and useful tech.

Hope this is of some help. Bud

Quickcam Communicate STX Avatars not working....

I had the same problem and i found a way to fix it. Well..... there is really no way to fix it but the problem is that the cameras that all of you have support fun filters only, and nothing else. Thats your problem. I had the same problem and there is no way to fix it but get a new web cam to find out which web cams do support those features go on the logitech quick cam website and look at compatible web cams and the ones at the top are the ones that do support those features. I hope i helped and have a great life with your web cam.

Avatar+face accesories

Your camera may not be compatible with them. Logitech makes the installation package available to all of the models, but some simply don't work with all cameras due to resolution, etc.

You can use a free program called manycam for other avatars / effects.

Avatars won't play

Make sure you're using the current software version from Logitech's site.

This is yours:,en

Also, if you're using XP, make sure "terminal" is enabled in your services. Even Logitech can't explain why this effects the add-ons, but it does.

Logitech quickcam special effects

Some cams don't support the special effects, although they use the same software package.

Just use manycam... it's free, and it works.
