Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera
Ok...ive been trying to solve this problem for quite some time but just cant get it.
I have a webcam, microsoft lifecam vx-3000 that while connected to my internet connection it wont connect when im using my msn messenger. Yet i know the camera works cause if i find another wireless connection and connect....the camera will work. Ive tried turning the firewall on and off....and changed the "exceptions". I even recently tried installing yahoo messenger and when trying to connect with that.....i got "a network error occured while connecting to the server"??? Can someone PLEASE help me......
(also if it helps, i cant download any music while connected to my connection....yet again when connected to a different wireless connection, it works)
I have tried dl new drivers for the camera, reinstalling windows....and tried to delete my wireless connection and refreshing it.
If you have any questions at all....please let me know as i would love to get this solved.
Did you install the software with the camera connected to
the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the
software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it
should work. Hope this is of some help.
Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.
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:
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:
C. Windows Live Messenger:
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
