!st, let me explain the problem more clearer, then I'll explain the solution.
Problem) My camera worked fine. Even when logging on to Yahoo messenger, i could still veiw myself when chatting. But when I clicked on the "broadcast" button, the "idle" status would change to "connecting" for a few seconds. Then the the following message would pop up, " The server is busy, Please close this window & try again in a few minutes".
Solution) In Yahoo messenger, click on "Messenger", scroll down & click on "preferences". In Category:, click on "connection". Make sure that "no proxies" is selected.

Try checking the fire wall in your cable or DSL modem. You need to enable TCP port 5100 for inbound and outbound traffic.

My webcam cannot broadcast. Everytime I activate it, I get the message ''The server is busy. Close the window and try again later.''


I haven't seen that message since I was on dial-up connection, using msn and yahoo messenger - so I think you have a resource problem and operating below the bandwidth for webcam broadcasts.
Since upgrading to broadband 3 years ago its been OK.

I m connected yahoo messenger while i m open cam that time give a massege 'a network error occurred while connection to the server '


HI,

This type of issue is usually solved by reinstalling the particular software which is giving the network error.

Please reinstall the yahoo messenger and let me know if you still face the same problem or not.

Thank you for using fixya.

Problem on cam


I used to get this when I was on dial-up but never since going broadband - so the bandwidth may be fragile.
You need to interrogate what is happening when the webcam is transmitting by opening the webcam menu on the webcam frame and click "statistics" Its best to transmit the "small" image and use the zoom 200% when established ( same as sending large photos by email ) - if I go for speed rather than quality on the slider I can achieve 5-6 frames per second ( small size) but I normally transmit about 1-2 f/s.
I have my webcam under VFW (video for windows) control as I used to get freeze problems. This involves a registry change - detailed in Messenger help

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstacamfix.html

You can tell when its under VFW control because VFW will be on the bottom of the Statistics box. You may need a little bit of software to make it work, if like me you do not have Directx on your pc - if so download the software featured here.

Dont worry about using the proxy server in "Connections" - Use it when you have to - I had to use it today to make my my webcam work - I also had to increase my virtual memory but that was as a result of error messages

Will not work with yahoo


My Lifecam vx- 1000 wasn't working on Yahoo messenger initially. After hours of researching i came across the solution that worked for me.

In "properties" limit the USB bandwidth used - by unchecking "Auto" in configuration and decreasing the speed manually (bring it down from 6mbps to 3).

This is what worked for me, hope this helps!

Hi, 1. Verify your internet connection. If it is possible change your DNS IP Address. 2. Try Updating your yahoo messenger >> http://messenger.yahoo.com/download.php THE PROPER WAY ON INSTALLING USB DEVICES A. Enable usb ports on the BIOS. 1. Do not plug in your device right away. Install all drivers and software first! 2. Reboot 3. Plug the power or turn on your USB Device 4. Plug in the USB Port. 5. Windows Will detect the Device Automatically. Finish! Hope this helps
