Camera will receive but not send video

My camera was working fine showing video and receiving video. Without making any changes to my computer settings, the camera will receive video but will not transmit my video to another computer. My picture shows up on my computer but is not going out. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software and restarted my computer many times. I have Windows XP on my computer. Can you help?

I think I can help you. Your problem is you need to upgrade your memory in your computer. I say this because when you reboot the computer your cleaning out the memory and then the computer will function normally again. If your computer can take an additional gig of memory your camera will be fine also you will notice an over all improvement in your computer.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES on the page you have received my response on. Thank you

Thecamera shows a perfect picture on my computer but there is no picture at the other end. I receive error messages that computer is not recognising the camera and there is no video.


Make sure only one program that uses is the camera is open at a time. For example, you cannot use an instant messaging service and Skype at the same time.

Dear friend, if other side does not have a cam or does not put the cam on mode for you then your not able to view them. Some time other side camera window will open in your Skype but you can't see the image. May be you seen black screen or green. It will happens for the few reason. 1. Slow internet connection, 2. wireless net connection, 3. if the other side camera open for other messenger , for exam Yahoo/msn & at the same time she/he sending you a cam viewing invitation in Skype , that time you will see those screens. 4. After log in go in Privacy then Calls & then open video settings. Now you set the Automatically receive video from mode & try after that to use.

Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

What should the securicam setting be, to view remotely for the dcs 5220 wireless camera


Wireless camera security systems are available at many stores such as Wal-mart, Fry's and Best Buymag-glass_10x10.gif. These systems can be used to monitor your home and possessions while away. This article will show how to set up such a system.
  1. Step 1 Decide what you want to see on your security system. Front doors, back doors and driveways are popular choices. Other choices may include living rooms, hallways and garages.
  2. Step 2 Wireless cameras are not completely wireless. They still need a wire for power. Most systems come with plug in adapter to power each camera. Most power wires are 4 to 6 feet long. The location of your cameras should be close to power outlets. Professional installers may run electrical wire inside walls and conceal the power outlets and adapters in junction boxes.
  3. Step 3 Each camera will need to be set to its own channel. Common channels for such systems are labeled A through D or 1 through 4. Drill holes into walls and mount the cameras with screws.
  4. Step 4 The wireless camera receiver will be positioned next to the television. Connect the receiver to the television using a cable that has a yellow, red and white connector on each end. Some systems may have an "S-video" connector and cable to connect it to the television. The receiver will also be powered by a plug in wall adapter. Connect it to the receiver and plug it into the wall.
  5. Step 5 Set the receiver to channel A or 1 and turn on the television. The channel of the television may need to be set to Game, Video In or some other name designating the input jacks used. Consult your television for more information.
  6. Step 6 The view from the camera that is set to channel A or 1 should be visible on the TV screen. Tilt the camera if needed to get the view you desire. Set the receiver to channel B or 2 and repeat with the camera that is set to B or 2. Repeat with the remaining 2 cameras.
  7. Step 7 More advanced users may connect the receiver to a VCR, DVR or computer. Digital video capture devices can be used to connect the receiver to the computer. Using video capture software, the video from the cameras can be broadcast on the internet using software such as Yawcam or WebcamXP. HomeCamera.com can also be used to monitor your cameras on the internet.
