    Did you install the software with the camera connected to
    the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the
    software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it
    should work. Hope this is of some help.

      (in blue writing) click on
      “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the
      left window.





    C. Windows Live
    Messenger:







    1. After
      you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the
      square on top left next to the red X.

How to install my microsoft lifecamVX-1000 inorder to chat my friends with web cam?


to chat with ur friends u will need the foll:
WebCam, Mic, and Speakers.
Alss u will need to have either Yahoo Msgr, or MSN Mgr etc
u need to connect the Webcam using the USB port and once the Webcam is detected by your OS (i assume u use Windows) u may have to install the driver for the Webcam(the CD that came along with the Webcam will have the driver)
inster the CD in the CDR/DVD drive and let the machine install the device....once it's doen u r set

Mic and Speakers r normally Plug and Play devices and they just need to be connected to PC/Laptops sound card/Mic ports in you machine and they will automaticaly work.

CANNOT GET WEB CAM TO CONNECT TO MSN AND IDEAS TY WEB CAM IS WORKING BUT WHEN TR TO SEND VIDEO IT SAYS CANNOT CONNECT TO MESSNGER AT THIS TIME EVEN THOUGH I AM IN THE MESSNGER...


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.

http://www.testmycam.com/

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'

Step 1: The "Tools" menu of Windows Live Messenger

1. Recover Windows Live Messenger in our software if you do not have it yet.
2. Start the installation of the software.
3. Once this is done, go to the Tools menu software.

In this menu, two links are important in order to properly configure your camera:"Setting audio and video" and "Parameters of the webcam."This is the first that we will discuss first and foremost, the second used primarily to adjust the parameters of the image in the secondary stage but we are dealing with. Launch therefore setup wizard and click on "Next".

Step 2: The setting of loudspeakers

1. Select your hardware in the menu.
2. Check the box if you use a helmet.
3. Test finally your sound output in order to adjust the volume.

It is possible that you find in the menu several choices. That means you have several elements in your computer capable of transmitting sound, a dedicated card and your motherboard, for example. In this case, make sure to select well the correct input, what you quickly verify the test by loudspeakers.

Step 3: At the turn of the microphone

1. Select your sound source.
2. Start talking to your microphone.
3. Observe the cursor, if it moves, your microphone is working.

Two remarks on the stage configuration. On the one hand, if your camera has no microphone, you must go through a device that you must annex plug into the pink on your sound card. On the other hand, if your mouse does not work, you may have selected the wrong input device sound. Take particular care in this setting and not leave this page only when the cursor s'agitera,
indicating that your voice is recognized by the software.

Step 4: Turning finally to the image

1. Specify this time the source of the video.
2. Observe the window of return: if your setup is satisfactory, your image should appear.
3. Adjust the frame rendering through the "Option" button.

Can't transmit video via MSN Messenger


As long as she is accepting your call when invited it should show up a little MSN advert then show your picture. The problem may be at your end, so check that you have the cam set up in settings and you both allow video to be accepted, ckeck all the web cam settings and menu options. If you haven't already, download MSN live messenger.
