There is no webcam available in Windows Live messenger. In Skype and Windows Messenger the webcam is well availble. What is wrong? It is a new N310 with windows XP. A second installation of windows live...


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.Download reginout intel partne to fix messenger registry problems

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

Friend's new laptop webcam not working on windows live messenger


Hi,
I have a toshiba satellite too. I had the same problem when i had just bought my laptop. It seems like it is a software or driver problem, nothing wrong with the hardware. Do this once or twice and this problem wont reoccur, it hasn't for me again. Go to device manager and disable the webcam, restart the computer then go back and enable it. Now the webcam will for fine with all instant messengers. I remember donig this few times when my laptop was new. Now its been over a year and this problem hasnot occured again. I hope this helps you too or your friend.
chandan tangbe.

Cant get web cam to work help


Try do uninstall all Webcam specific applications(Like YouCam), and close all webcam enabled application(like Live Messenger).
sometimes they conflict with skype.
install latest drivers for your webcam if you don't have them already
Go in the skype settings and set up your webcam.
Now you should be good.

Acer crystal eye webcam cant use in yahoo messenger


Make sure all of your drivers are updated for the webcam and the sound card. To check the drivers go to the manufacturer's websites for each of these products. Also, make sure your yahoo messenger is updated and make sure that the Windows Live Essentials is updated to latest version. If this does not solve your problem, please let me know.

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam and MSN Messenger


I'm not sure if your problem is fixed yet or not, but I had this same problem when I updated to windows live 2009. But whenever I deleted it and got an older version of live it works just fine. So, I think it's msn and not the webcam..but i'm not positive about that. Mine just seemed to work after I got an older version.

My LG S900 cam not working with messenger


Hi Rushguy55

It may be a Direct X issue.

First,
***Follow the link below to Test ur webcam using Internet explorer
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger75/webcam/webcam-03.html

The above page will check compatibility with Y! messenger.


Minimum Requirements:
For your webcam to work with Yahoo! Messenger, it needs to support the following:
  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! 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! 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 DirectX version. 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.

hope this helps. . .
