Webcam and Live Messenger

I have installed my webcam and it seems to be working fine when I open the labtec webcam program from the start menu. However when I try to use it in conjunction with MSN Live Messenger I get a black fuzzy screen rather than my image. Is there a solution?

    Found the solution. I went into the main window for windows messenger . Tools/audio and video setup, then I followed the instructions onscreen. The image input device wasn't set to my camera. Thanks for the help.

I can use the webcam on Skype but when I close Skype and open Instant Messenger I get a message that the webcam is unplugged or being used by another application.

Does the cam work ok if you try to record a short video clip in Windows Movie maker 2(programme that comes with Win XP). This way if it records and plays back ok you will know if it's the cam or it isn't set up correctly in MSN Live. Also check the settings on the cam, it may be a light problem. Hope this narrows it down for you.

SOURCE: Hp webcam problem with live messenger

Had the same problem... Here's how I solved the problem...
But if you do this be careful... I take no responsibility...Just trying to help...
Go to your firewall settings & make sure Port number 443 Tcp & Udp are open... This gives access to secure Websites...
If you do not know how to open ports then get someone to help you
or do some reading in the internet on how to do it...
Fot windows xp just open the firewall & click exceptions then click port..
now just type in whatever name you want to call it then type in 443 as the port number & check tcp & click ok...Now go back again & do the same except this time check Udp.. After opening port 443 if it should by some chance be closed,try to use the webcam with messenger... Even if it does now work I also recommend that you go here & follow those instructions as well... http://messenger-support.spaces.live.com/blog/
Those instructions start off by helping with sign in problems but as you scroll further down the page you will find many other tips and tricks that should help... I hope this will help to solve your webcam issues.

My labtec webcam is not showing image after intallation


Uninstall the software and also disconnect the webcam from the PC. Now shut down the PC and restart. Check the program list to see if the webcam is uninstalled. Now connect to site and download the drivers of the webcam. Once installed connect the webcam as it will be detected as a new device and will install automatically.
now the Icon must appear for opening the webcam. if not there can be errors in the software or the webcam. Try with another PC to confirm.

Trying to install Labtec drivers for my labtec webcam for Windows 7. It worked perfectly fine with Windows XP and Windows Vista. I updated to 7 and nothing.


You can contact Labtech from here
http://www.labtec.com/index.cfm/service/splash/AMR/EN,CRID=3

You may have to run it in Compatibility mode if Windows 7 webcam software is not available - I'm sure they can advise you

To navigate to CM on my logitech I rightclick the webcam shortcut icon on the desktop and click 'Properties' and then the 'Compatibility' tab.

Just plugged in my usb labtec webcam and I have no idea how to use it? How do I make it take pictures, etc....


U need to have a Driver for that,just plugging into your PC wont help...windows will not recognize and u won't be able to use it. Make sure you have a driver and install it before you attach your webcam.When u install the driver you'll see an icon for your webcam on the desktop or in the Start menu folder. When you open that up you will see help options also.

You microphone is working, your family camera is working, your camera is not working.
if you installed the correct drivers and program that came with the camera, the program should have a walk through while installing, it should test the settings of your camera.
If not open the labtec program and test the settings. If there is no Labtec program installed on your PC, you will need to install that software.

Check the software installation disk. Sometimes these give several programs to run the thing If you install both programs -as I did once- you will get conflicts or none running. Best thing to do is to remove the software and this time take it easy on the install button.
