    I cannot use my Logitech Communicate webcam. The program will install but says it is being used by another application. I stayed on thh phone with Logitech support for 1 1/2 hours and they finally gave up! The camera will work on my laptop, but not desktop, so I know it is not a defective camera. I have performed a clean boot, downloaded the latest software, etc. Is there a way to tell exactly what application is using this webcam? I really would appreciate any help. Thank you.

    I have tried three different models of logitechs webcams and everytime I get the same error: camera is being used by another program. But I have no idea which program. I can't find any other program at all on my computer that would be using the camera. I think that if Logitechs program can deduce that another program is in conflict, it should also be able to name that program. Otherwise it's just as useful as BSOD.

How can i use my hp probook inubuilt cam

If you use Skype or some instant messaging, chat, video calling program it will sense the presence of a camera and will ask you whether you want to use it.
For HP laptops there is usually an application software installed that allows you to use the camera. Look in the list of programs for something that may be named my camera, HP web camera, Camera application. etc.

Cannot get skype camera to come on on an existing account

I can't get my webcam to work

1. Check that your webcam is switched on and plugged into your computer

2. A webcam can only be used by one application at a time, so make sure you don't have any other applications open that are accessing the webcam, e.g. other instant messaging applications or even some websites.

3. Problems with video are often caused by driver issues. A driver is the program you install with the webcam which makes the webcam work with your computer (some webcams use preinstalled drivers so you may not have had to install one). Make sure you have the latest driver installed. You can download and install the most recent drivers from the webcam manufacturer's website.

To test your webcam go to the Skype menu > Preferences > Video and tick the box Enable Skype Video. When Skype is able to use your webcam, you will see a video preview of yourself.

Message from AIM: Your camera is already being used by another application. Please exit all applications that are currently using the camera and try again. Per the Task Manager, I can't find anything else...

Restart the computer and restart the application. This occurs with other applications that use the camera. Sometimes when the camera is used with another application it doesn't release the camera for use with a subsequent application. Restarting the computer had worked for me.

Weird message

check if there is a device driver conflict...a reinstallation of the OS to another hard disk might be easier to do the this case you can install the camera driver first and later monitor each application that interferes with it.

Error message: Another application may be using the camera

what may be happening is photoshop is still aquiring the cam in the programme although you may of finished using the software and the camera automatically associates itself with adobe. press Ctrl, Alt & Delete to get into task manager and in the applications tab look for your photoshop programme, if it is there, click end process. If not there look in processes and do the same, this should release your camera for use with other applications. If all fails you will have to uninstall the camera software and reinstall to associate it with the cam.
