Webcam problems on MSN and on Laptop

Hello,

My logitech webcam, as well as any other webcam, refuses to connect to my contact on MSN. The laptop is a window's Vista, and the webcam is accepted and about 30 seconds later, when it usually is supposed to show up, it closes automatically wtihout anyone having to touch it. What's wrong with it? It works fine on my desktop computer.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Describe your how to install logitech quickcamProblem i install already but my msn can use the web cam


Disconnect your webcam
Close all programs
Uninstall current software
Restart computer
Download software from Logitech website - find your camera and click on the picture to move to the support page for that model

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

Older models on page 2 - look for the link at bottom right of page 1 "Still can't find your product?"
Select your OS and download software
Upload software - you may not want the Logitech chat feature but do opt for the desktop shortcut
Connect your webcam when prompted
Make sure you have the support software installed for logitech webcams (DirectX 9)

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'

Logetech web cam


Try this instead. Go to logitech.com go into the webcam section find the model of webcam you purchased.To the left side of the the photograph of your webcam It shows downloads.Click on that and download the software directly from logitech. just follow the prompts which starts with what operating system your using (windows98) are you going to use skype or msn? just remember once you've set up the software in your computer you'll have to also set up the webcam to whatever medium you using to chat msn or whatever. On msn its at the top of the contact list page, under tools.

No sound


You will have to set the logitech webcam up to the medium you are using yahoo...msn. This is done after the software is installed.I don't use yahoo but on msn open it up then go to tools on the msn page at the top above all your contacts.Open the tools and go to webcam setup,click on it and follow the steps.This will get the mic working.It took me awhile to realize you had to do it twice once for the software setup and again to set it up to mate to MSN.

Face-tracking prob with Quiclcam Pro5000


Make sure you have installed the latest software from Logitech's website. Be sure to UNPLUG the cam when installing, and ONLY plug it in when it tells you to do so.

Also, what service (msn, yahoo) are you trying to use face tracking in? Keep in mind that MSN, Yahoo, etc have their own camera settings, which may over-ride any default settings.

Of you're on MSN, Logitech has a solution:
