When trying to start a video call with another contact, it constantly says its loading. This happens on my end as well as the other contacts. I can see myself but not the contact. I have turned off firewalls, updated my registration profile. The contact is located in another country but we were able to use it ok 12 months ago. Please help, this is frustrating!

First of all make sure you have the webcam drivers installed on your pc.Next install the MSN messenger,login to your account and then click on Webcam icon under the display picture and then click send/show my webcam.After the person at the other end accepts it they will be able to see you.
You can also click on contact name (the email id of your friend on the list) with right button. Then select video and click on Start a Video Call.
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.
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'
there could be the problem with registry keys conflicting with each other,
Tools > Audio and video setup...
Follow the instructions on the setup screen and once its finished, you will find that the webcam should be able to show up.
If it doesn't show the webcam on the other person, tell him to switch
his status to busy for 5 seconds and then back, hopefully that should
come up on the other persons screen.
If this hasn't work in most cases it should work - You will have to
downgrade to Windows Live Messenger 8.5 and hopefully it should work.
If this hasn't work, go to the HP website and search up webcam drivers
for your device and then install it on your computer - Hopefully your
webcam would work. if it does not work then you have to download reginout registry cleaner to fix this problem
Have you tried to set up the webcam via yahoo or MSN. Go to the options menu and select webcam. It should ask you to select a device to use as your webcam. If it is available select your webcam and continue setup. You will have to do this with both yahoo and MSN
uninstall your msn reinstall then in the file on your msn beside where you add contacts click the arrow then tools then setup audio and video.
Then exit msn and restart
This seems to be a constant problem with msn and built in cams
what type of camera and what laptop
uninstall all of programs you use to install your camera. After the uninstall plug your camera in and wait for the system to ask for your drivers, load your drivers and reboot your machine. If your drivers can run in a 16 bit emulation on a 32 bit emulation then you are good to go, if not well welcome to the world of vista.
