My logitech webcam won't work in msn messenger....in messenger when i try to make a video call...it says I need to buy or install a webcam? what's the deal? heeeelp


Hi Marilyn,

Have you installed the Logitech Quickcam program? If you did then open the application and select the instant messenger(i.e. MSN, SKype, Yahoo) that you will be using the camera.

If you have note yet installed the Logitech Quickcam application then I suggest you disconnect the webcam and run the software first.

The information in this article applies to the following 3rd party software
MSN Messenger 6.x
MSN Messenger 7.x

The information in this article applies the following platforms
Windows 98
Windows ME
Windows 2000

Windows Vista
Note: The information in this article is not product specific. For details regarding camera driver and operating system support please see article 3428
Step 1: Getting Started
Before we begin setting up the sound in MSN or Windows Live Messenger, ensure the following is complete:
  • Connect your camera and verify that it is working properly
  • If using headphones, verify that your device is connected and functioning
  • If using speakers, verify that they are functioning properly
  • If using a headset, verify that both the headphone and microphone are connected and working properly.


Step 2: Executing the audio and video setup procedure within the messenger application
This procedure will allow you to assign an audio input and audio output device, as well as assigning the video device of your choice to work with the messenger application. The following example uses Windows Live Messenger 8.5 however, the same procedure can be used for earlier versions of MSN Messenger 6.x and above. MSN Messenger users please skip directly to step 4 below.
Note to Windows Live Messenger users: There are multiple ways to execute the following steps depending on being signed in vs signed out of the messenger application, and which version of Windows Live Messenger is being used. To avoid confusion, please execute the following steps while signed out. We also recommend updating to the latest version of Windows Live Messenger.
1. Sign out of your account.
2. Launch the messenger application (make sure you are not signed in to your account).
3. Locate and click the "Help" drop down button towards the top right corner and select "Show the menu bar"

6. In the “Speaker Setup” window, select the output device you would like to use with the messenger application. This step is specific to speakers or headphones. If your speakers or headphones are USB devices and connected to your computer, select the device by using the drop down menu provided. If your speakers or headphones are connected to your soundcard, the device listed will be the make or model of your soundcard device.
You can also set the desired volume level and click “Play Sound” for an audio sample. Click "Next" once you are comfortable with the your selected options.

7. In the “Microphone Setup” window, select your desired input device from the drop down menu provided.

If you have an external USB microphone or headset device connected to your computer that hosts a microphone, select the devices name or model number in the drop down menu. If your external microphone or headset is connected to your soundcard, the device listed will be the make or model of your soundcard device. Once your device is selected, adjust the microphone volume level to your preference and click next.
Note: The microphone volume level may need to be tested in order to find a comfortable volume level. As a starting point, try setting the level midway and adjust when necessary by re-executing this procedure.

8. In the “Webcam Setup” window, select the video device you would like to use with messenger application. Once selected, you should see a display sample in the window provided. You can also click the “Options” button to make camera specific adjustments. Once completed, click the “Finish” button to apply your changes.

Check the camera settings are not too high 320x480 or similair should be enough. Have you installed Windows Messenger live, the new MSN and tried it with that?
