Question about Creative Labs WebCam Live!

Broadcast issue Hi, I bought a creative cam recenlty. It works on my pc, you can see my pictures except if you go onto yahoo or msm and try to chat etc. On yahoo I can request my cam picture which is fine until you try to broadcast it, 20 seconds later it then cuts off! Spometimes it actually diconnects the broadband,then I have to shut it down and restart I did re-install the drivers etc, but there is no change to the situation. Thanks, Paul

Go to start/control panel/system/device manager/check and see if any have a yellow mark on them this means drivers are faulty or not loaded properly right click/properties when in properties delete driver and/or upgrade
One other thing to try is go to c:\ right click properties go to tools/check now/when box pops up tick automatically fix errors
Reboot sometimes windows registry and system files are mixed up and can cause errors

Hi,

Please try reinstalling the camera drivers/software and also the application you use to view your camera first uninstall all the drivers from control panel>add/remove programs and then reinstall the drivers/software again from the disc provided to you.If you use any online chat messengers for video chat like skype or yahoo then reinstall that also.

This should fix the problem.

Thank you for using fixya.

The sound works well but the camera is not. I can see the caller but they cannot see me and there is no inset picture of me as there used to be when making a video call


can u see ur video on the screen. if yes then properly configure ur video conferencing software and u will be certainly able to broadcast ur video to the caller. download yahoo messanger and then create a yahoo account and log into yahoo messanger. then plug in the cam and go to action menu and then click on view my webcam. u will be able to see the video on the screen. call any one who has cam and u can see his video nad that person can see u and can hear u if u have microphone with u....then happy video chatting

Split cam is not showing video i connect to yahoo and i just get a black screen


make sure that you setting up your webcam on your yahoo messenger properly, this problems are not setup properly on YM.
Go to Preferences on your Yahoo Messenger, see it there that your webcam is currently default to use on the system, and if not, just to select your Creative Labs Live Cam.
Or maybe you didn't install yet your nice cam. You have to setup that before you use all your chat messenger program. Good luck!

Black screen


The problem sounds like it is not with the hardware or software - You are able to take pictures indicating the device is on and working.

The problem appears to be with the associated programmes such as Skype, Yahoo. You need to select on of the video chat programmes and select the webcam you choose to work with it.

In any of the video chat you will find it is in options/ settings/ video

You have to do the Audio & Video setup for it to work properly. See section B. for YAHOO in the following info.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
