You can view your Veo Observer web cam at home by either of two methods. The first is to use the Observer Studio software that came with the camera. When you configured the camera, you selected a local (private) IP address for each Veo Observer, and set the address specific to each camera. You then put the same IP address into your Observer Studio Software.
Depending on the brand of router you use on your home network, your Veo Observer camera probably has a local (private) IP address in the format 192.168.0.xxx or 192.168.1.xxx where "xxx" is the actual address assigned to your Veo Observer (by you) and configured to display on the LCD window on the side of the Veo Observer.
You may need to log into your router to see which of the two local (private) IP address formats is used. Your router's user manual will show you how.
To view your Veo Observer, just type the exact local (private) IP address in your IE browser. for example, if you assigned address 100 to your cam, you would enter http://192.168.0.100 or 192.168.1.100 into your browser. Veo Observer will display the Language selection screen. Choose the language, then you log in and view your camera.
To view your camera from outside your home using another computer, you use the same method, but you have to substitute your WAN (public) IP address.
You can log into your router and select its STATUS tab to view your WAN (public) IP address. See you router's set up guide if you do not know how to do this.
An easier way to determine your WAN (public) IP address is to visit Gibson Research Shields Up! web page:
and scroll down to the last paragraph where you will find your WAN (public) IP address.
For example, if this address is 123.456.789.100, then you would enter http://123.456.789.100 on your IE browser. You should see the Language select screen, choose your language, then log in and you are now viewing your Veo Observer from outside your home.
Note: when you view your Veo Observer at home, you probably have a fast frame rate and smooth video motion. When you view your Veo Observer from outside the home, the frame rate is certain to be less, and your moving image quality will be choppy. This is normal, as viewing from outside the home is less efficient and the image suffers. There is nothing you can do to boost the frame rate.

Ensure the web cam is secured to your personal computer (PC). Most web cams use a "plug and play" principle. You plug the web cam in; it operates.
Install the required software for the web cam to operate. This may involve placing a CD in one of the drives, or alternatively, downloading the software from a host site.
Always reboot the computer after installing new software.
Click on the desktop icon or the program icon to start the program. If the program is correctly functioning, the web cam will start producing an image of its view on the desktop. Adjust the web cam for a clear picture and the view you want.
Most web programs will have a icon for "take picture." Left click on that icon or button. The web cam, like a normal camera, will then "freeze" that image and place it in a photo library.
Open the photo library and examine the image just taken. Congratulations, you just took a photograph with your web cam.
Attach all power cords (e.g. laptopand/or web cam).
Plug your USB cam directly into your computer (do not use any external USB hubs). Turn your cam on
As long as your web cam and computer hardware are working, Windows should detect it!
2. Open Device Manager
For Vista => Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Classic View, click Device Manager => Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Home View, click System and Maintenance->Device Manager
For XP => Click Control Panel->System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager button
3. Find your web cam in Device Manager
Understanding Device Names => Windows provides user-friendly device names to accomodate us humans. As far as Windows is concerned, the device name is simply a comment! => It's those cryptic Device Identification strings that really identify a device => Device Manager displays whatever device name it happens to find in the device driver ...==> If Windows finds NO device driver, your web cam may be named “Unknown” or "Other" device ...==> If Windows finds the WRONG device driver you may see your web cam with the WRONG device name
How to find your web cam => While your web cam is connected, look through all of Device Manager for devices with a yellow icon (probably a yellow question mark) => Look if a device category Other Devices. Also, be certain to expand the USB category to check all devices listed under it => Your web cam will appear as a device with a yellow icon (probably a question mark) => Click on thumbnail to see the full sized image How to verify the device you found is your web cam => Your web cam device will only appear in Device Manager when the web cam is powered on and connected => Disconnect your web cam. Verify the device you had found is no longer displayed in Device Manager
4. Find your web cam's Hardware Ids
In Device Manager, select your web cam device, rt click Properties. Click Details tab
Select Hardware Ids from the pull-down. You'll see a list of one or more Hardware Id strings

probably on the cam settings it ha a case where it said black and white ...this case must free in order to see colored captures....so ..take a look it is placed somewhere in the right ( low) ...I hope you know how to get on camera settings...if not try this.. there are two ways: one its to open the AM cap and select from the window...options /video capture filter...and than uncheck the B/W case.. the other is to access the preferences in yahoo messenger ....camera settings...an the same ..uncheck the BW... Good luck ..and hopefully its from there ...if it isnt this one ...must be something wrong with the web cam ....let me know how it worked out..!
No, most likely some resident software is accessing the camera, or the camera needs updated drivers. try updating to the newest software and make sure the cam software isnt booting up before the MSN client
