Hello...I have installed Skype and I also wanted to chat with my friends on msn. I have installed a webcam (Creative) which works fine, but my ear phones which come with it, does not allow me to hear anything. Whenever I telephoned a skype number, the error notice pop up saying there is a problem with the "playback" device. My friends can hear me but I can't hear them....could you guide me through my system please so that I can check I have clicked or unclicked whatever needs to be...many thanks....Nigel.

It happened to me too. But I use Linux, so the settings are not the same. It was the sound settings that were by default set to mute. Go to the control panel and select Sounds (and peripherique???). You will find some settings there.

I don't know how to access my webcam


Hello:
For the majority of webcam uses, you would use a separate program that accesses the webcam. Examples include: If you only want to record videos and take pictures, you can use Windows Live Movie Maker. You can download it at http://explore.live.com/windows-live-movie-maker?os=other

I have a dell laptop with a built in webcam and it works fine however when i come to use it with msn messenger then it will not let the contact i'm chatting with see me or let me see them. hope you can...


You need to setup you MSN Messenger to control your camera. Download the latest version (MSN Messenger) first and install it. Sometimes older versions will not work with a cam. Also, download another messenger like Yahoo, and try that as well.

How do you use the webcam?


Hello,

If you have skype, or yahoo messenger, or msn messenger, when you installed, the webcam can be turned on automatically.

Or you can go to some website that can take snapshot from you cam or download program to turn on the cam.

Hello,

No, don't do that. It is free before, but now they charge.


1.
step 1: go to www.picanom.com
step 2: select the tab "SNAP!"
step 3: allow to access your cam, and take the shots
step 4: click on the shot want to save and download it.

2. use this program , Camsnap, click here

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!

Hello sandeep

Since the problem here is compatiability issue. Suggestion: why dont you try other video chat programs. Skype is also good for video chatting and free to use. If all doesnt work you should consider asking for a replacement.

Best of luck

Web cams


If you're running Windows XP, have an available USB port, and decent (not dial-up) internet, you're good to go! Any camera on this page should do it for ya, though I'd recommend any Logitech or Microsoft camera:

They're also very easy to install, and usually include some sort of chat software. If the included software doesn't suit you, install any popular instant messenger (MSN Messenger would work well) or Skype and you'll be on your way.
