Can't get webcam to work with AIM, why?

I just bought the Logitech QuckCam Communicate STX and have successfully loaded it onto my PC (XP). I only use AOL's AIM. I can not seem to connect with anyone on AIM. I have tested the camera on Yahoo and it works so I know the problem can't be the camera. Or is it? In AIM properties, I have set my Enhanced IM settings correctly like I read online. But it still does not work. I'm close to packing it up and returning it if I can't figure out what's going on. Can anyone help me out? Troubleshoot? Anything? can only see myself on aim webcam noone else why?

install the drivers, then plug in the webcam (in that order). in programs such as Skype, AIM, etc, that have video conferencing options there will usually be an option to choose the video source, sinple choose the C250.

  2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
  3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
  4. Then click on Audio Video.

Built in Microphone doesn't work in AIM, Windows Live Messanger


You would be surprised at how many people don't realize that each application has it's own configuration screen.

It's not the end-users fault - like you said... the instructions could be a BIT more clear.

THE REAL SOLUTION!!!!

You probably have multiple video cameras and AIM has defaulted the wrong one

on AIM:
1. go to edit
2. settings
3. enhanced im
4. audio & video
5. camera
6. choose something other than default
7. apply
8. repeat 1-7 until the image appears

do NOT click on video under innivations
