Its not unusual for webcam software to remain hooked up to a previous program even if you have exited that program correctly.
Before opening your chat program unplug the cam from the USB port for a couple of seconds to re-boot the webcam software.
If its built-in you will have to re-start the computer - use a keyboard shortcut or disable/enable the cam from the Imaging Folder in the Device Manager.
Check the camera source as well - you may have other imaging software loaded that can cause conflicts

My ultra transform keeps having to close different applications such as gallery or messages


there are probably too many apps running at once. When the ram is full the phone will auto kill apps that it thinks are not as useful and that is where the error messages are coming from. I know that I have had Samsung phones with an actual press home button and with that you can clear ram or kill individual apps

Close the other video streaming application to start video


Your camera is already online. Double click the camera icon in the lower right task bar and it will work. That is the problem, the program is trying to run twice. Again, the camera is online and working and the access to it is in the task bar at the bottom. You, of course, can change these setting if you like.

Web cam says to close other video streaming application before it can proceed but there are no applications open


I have an answer! I've tried many times to fix this problem on my laptop, even talking to two dell reps in the process(which was worthless). Finally I found the problem(for me, at least)- my webcam's driver was not compatible. If you haven't tried this already, go to your Device Manager, click the plus sign next to Imaging Devices, and select Integrated Webcam. Right click that and select Update Driver Software. I downloaded the latest driver it found and restarted my computer, and miraculously my webcam central was back to normal. I hope this helps you too!

Locked by another aoolication (web cam) please advise


Do you have a fire wall running on your PC. If so disable your firewall and check to see if the web cam starts. If this is not the case do you have any type of internet child protection software installed?

Cam is not completing installation and setup


I found the solution the drivers on the disc buy shipped are not the right drivers. NOR are the newest ones on Logitech's site. Uninstall them and use this instead:
