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.

I need to know the pin designations on a small home security camera i bought. It has no name only the model number (080800-24t) and uses the OV5116 camera chipset. I have pics of the camera. it is a small...


Red is Power (12VDC), Black is Common Ground, White is Audio, Yellow is Video. The camera is from a "Homeland Security Brand" Camera and Monitor set that was being sold at Walmart about 2004/2005. That's the Black and White Model. The "Night Vision" portion barely works on these and the picture isn't very clear even during the day... They're nothing like, say, the CD-33 Ball Turret Color Cameras from SuperCircuits (Which are cheaper now than the HLS Brand B&W Cameras were back in '04). I understand that it's "What you have", just letting you know what to expect so you don't put any money into a system based on these. Hope this helps.

11/27/2006:  Important Notice About Your Sony® Product
Thank you for your support and patronage of Sony products.
It has come to our attention that a limited number of products, manufactured before March 2004, and incorporating a certain type of image sensor device (CCD), may exhibit the following:
When the product is used in camera mode, the LCD panel and/or electronic viewfinder exhibits either a distorted image or no image at all. We have determined that this only occurs in a limited number of devices, but may be accelerated if they are exposed to hot and humid environments.
Until March 31, 2009, Sony will repair, free of charge, affected products exhibiting the above-mentioned symptom where it is caused by the image sensor device.
Important Notes:
There is a $15.00 charge for shipping and handling. A credit card is required at the time the order is placed. You must provide a mailing address in the United States or U.S. territories.
********************** UPDATE FROM SONY: **********************
I just got off of the phone with a Sony customer service rep, and everything was taken care of. Sony required a credit card, but the rep helped me out and had UPS send me a shipping label.
**Sony is aware of the problem and is fixing it for free (except shipping costs.**
If you have a different model number camera, enter in your model number and use the left hand menu for "News and Articles." Find an article titled "Important Notice About Your Sony® Product" and follow the instructions.

Cyber Shot DSC-T1, Possible CCD Problem


Hello,
When ccd imager is defective, picture result on still image and video get bad in either cases.
Your camera problem is some thing different and hardware failure is possible like data processing IC but in any case, digital processing board has to be replaced and I'm sure its price would be above and over the camera worth.
You can give try by removing and plugging back the flexible wire board ( ribbon) of lens and ccd imager attached to circuit board. Be careful when handling as flexible wire board can be damaged easily.
Thank you.

Video freezes when streaming to the internet


Dave, While of course it may be a capacity issue. Is the video smoother at different times of the day? or is it every 5-10 seconds no matter what time of day. It may be security software checking the stream. How is your firewall/router set? Do you have a designated port for the camera? Let me know if that helps at all. Good Luck, Tim
