    Well, what mine does it is slowly deteriorate. It started off taking moving pictures, videos using as much of the monitor as I wanted to let it--it has gotten down now to just "searching" for pictures or snapshots - which isnt even what I use it for, and when it doesnt find any it closes becasue its all done for the day as far is its concerned--rip off thing from Walmart; what do I expect?

    I can get my cam to work if I open the webcam itself, but on Yahoo Messenger, I only get a dark, blank screen. I've used it with MSN messenger and it worked fine. I'm going to try reinstalling Yahoo Messenger and see if that helps. If it doesn't, I'm at a loss.

Philips web cam spc110nc


Philips Webcam SPC110NC doesnt work with Yahoo Messenger as advertised. Packaging says it works with MSN/Yahoo/AIM, but when troubleshooting Yahoo IM using AMCAP.EXE (as per the Yahoo webcam help site), it shows color space/compression used by this product is MJPG and this is the only option. Yahoo IM only supports RGB 24, I420, or IYUV.

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 ...
