Question about Webcams

Webcam not recognised

Hi Hanto, Ever since I upgraded to MS XP from Win 2000, my webcam does not work with either Yahoo messanger or Skype. Interestingly the video in the camera works when webcam switched on, the microphone which is built into the webcam works while using YM or skype but I get a error message saying that the webcam could not be found, hence no video while chatting or calling. Please help. Thanks, Rishi

Sorry, just noticed your message today at 2045 hours 17July08 Korea time. If you haven't already fixed this issue, please let me know what brand and model of webcam you are speaking of in relationship to WinXP and what service pack you are using?

Ms 211 webcam and skype version 4.0 for windows XP compatibility


You can try to download and install a program called SplitCam, which allows you to use your webcam as the video source in that program.
SplitCam then allows you to use the webcam in multiple other programs.

In Skype you can select the SplitCam video source, rather than the webcam itself.
Worked for me, hope it helps.

Philips SPC110NC/27 webcam doesn't work with any chat service.. skype yahoo..


Guys I got one (SPC110NC ) today and it behaved as follows

1. Plug and play .. so windows XP (SP2) recognised it instantly.
2. images were recorded from the general webcam application (defaalu XP one ).
3. Skype however gave the error that was somewhat like " Skype cannot access ur webcam etc ..."

Apparently for Skype 3 and higher u need a special driver .. which u can get at

http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=US&slg=AEN&cat=PC_CAMERAS_CA&sct=WEBCAMS_SU&session=20080804034458_66.249.71.24&grp=PC_PRODUCTS_GR&ctn=SPC110NC/27&mid=Link_Software&hlt=Link_Software

The user manual doesnot specify the exact url of the drivers , though it specifies the need of installing them.

Get the driver , install it and skype hopefully will work fine. it worked for me after this 30 min exercise ...
