The phillips webcam you have may not be compatible.
So far, the list of compatible phillips webcams for macintosh is:

Phillips Vesta
Phillips ToUCam
Phillips Vesta Pro
Phillips SPC900NC
Phillips SPC210NV

Other things to check:

Never install more than one set of drivers for your webcam, you need to delete all previous drivers and install the new ones.

A webcam can only send video to one window, so do not send video to more than one program

As far as checking for video:

Go to Help>Welcome Tour>Setup
>Test Your Equipment
Find your equipment and follow instructions

One more option is:
Preferences<Audio/Video and look for your equipment

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
