Question about Logitech Quickcam IM 961361-0403 Webcam

1 Answer

Webcam in use by anothre application

Everytime I try to pull up my webcam menu, instead of seeing a picture of myself, the screen has a message saying my webcam is in use by another application. Then it says I need to close out that application and push the reconnect but it shows on the screen. I don't have any other programs on my computer that I know of that use the webcam so this is really baffling me, and I can't seem to fix the problem. Please help, my family lives out of state and they love to visit with their grandson via the webcam. Thanks.

    I was using skype but currently I don't have anything installed right now other than the webcam software. I was having some problems with skype before all of this happened. Basically, when I would videocall someone, they could see us, but I was not getting their videofeed back.

How to take picture on webcam in windows 7


take picture with built in webcam b> Launch the "Photo Booth" application. If it's not in your dock menu options, locate it under the "Applications" folder. Once "Photo Booth" is open an image of what the webcam sees will display on the window. Move your computer webcam or monitor as necessary to capture the image you want. Click on the red button at the bottom of the window to take the picture. The "3, 2, 1" countdown displays and the picture is taken. Add effects if necessary prior to taking the picture, by clicking on the "Effects" button on the lower-right. Choose the effect you wish to use and click on the red button again. b> Take Pictures in Windows Launch the application that corresponds to your built-in webcam. If you are unsure, go to your computer manufacturer's website and download the latest driver that corresponds to your computer webcam. Install the drivers if necessary and restart your computer when the install process is completed. Once the given application is running, move your hand in front of the webcam to make sure it recognizes an image. Move your computer webcam or monitor as necessary to capture the image you want. Click on the specific button for Take Picture, Snapshot or Image Capture. Depending on your Windows operating system, the pictures will be automatically played or viewed by different applications, such as Quickplay or Windows Photo Gallery.

To locate the picture, look under the "Shared Documents" folder or go to the "Preferences" menu in the webcam's application to see where the pictures are saved. b> Taking Pictures Through Online Applications On your Web browser, enter the Web address of an online webcam-application site, such as cameroid or picanom (See links Below). http://www.cameroid.com/ http://www.picanom.com/ http://maczealots.com/tutorials/photo-booth/ No downloads will be necessary. Click on the "Snap" tab from any of these applications. A viewing area will display and an "Adobe Flash Player Settings" dialog box might appear, alerting you to "Allow" or "Deny" camera and microphone access by this site. Once allowed, a live image of what your webcam sees will display in the viewable area. Select from the list of Effects, Filters, Scenes or Frames if necessary or applicable.
Click on the "Snapshot" icon to take the picture you desire. Once the picture is taken, a menu will display for you to choose your download. Click on the "Download a JPG file" option, then confirm the action by pressing "OK." also make sure you have all software needed

Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer

Try to turn on webcam,it comes on momentarily and then i get an on- screen message saying the cam is used in another application, and to shut down other applicaton and retry,


Webcam software has a habit of remaining hooked up to any previous application it was used in.
When you get this message re-boot the webcam software by unplugging it from the USB port for a few seconds.

Logitech QuickCam Communicate MP - black screen


  1. Either one of these image sizes:
    • Small image size: 160 x 120
    • Large image size: 320 x 240
  2. RGB, I420, or IYUV formats. (Each is fine; we recommend RGB 24.)
  3. Microsoft DirectX version 9.0
To get this information, click here to download a Microsoft application that checks to see if your webcam device meets these requirements.
To make it easy, when you’re asked where to Save the program, just save it on your Desktop.
Once it’s downloaded, here’s what to do:
  1. Double-click the amcap.exe file on your desktop.
    • If you have more than one webcam installed, click the Devices menu and select the one you want to use.
  2. Click the Options menu, then click “Video capture Pin.”
  3. Under “Color Space/Compression:”, choose one of the following formats:
    • RGB 24 (our recommendation)
    • I420
    • IYUV
    Note: If one of the options above isn’t in the list, then your webcam is not compatible with Yahoo!7 Messenger.
  4. Under “Output Size”, choose one of the following:
    • 160 x 120
    • 320 x 240
    Note: If one of the options above isn’t in the list, then your webcam is not compatible with Yahoo!7 Messenger.
  5. Click OK
  6. Close the ampcap application.
  7. From your desktop, click ‘Start’ and select ‘Run’.
  8. In the run box, type: dxdiag
  9. In the confirmation dialog box, click OK.
  10. On the System Tab under ‘System Information’, look for DirectXversion. Verify that your version is DirectX 9.0. If it is, just click Exit. If your version is older than 9.0 (any lower number), click here to download the latest version of DirectX.
  11. Start the webcam from Messenger by clicking My Webcam in the Messenger menu.
Attention Logitech webcam users:
Some Logitech webcam drivers may cause one of the following problems:
  • Windows freezes when accessing the webcam
  • A black screen appears when using the webcam in Messenger
  • A ‘Webcam not found’ error message appears.
  • After 3 seconds, the sound drops out of calls made via Messenger
If you already verified that your device is compatible through the above steps and you’re a Logitech webcam user, please click here to update your Logitech webcam driver.
