new digicam/webcam

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I bought a new digi-cam today which can also be used as a webcam. Ive plugged it into the computer, installed all the crap that comes on the CD but I can get the webcam to work on either MSN or Yahoo. Are there any websites or anything I can use and does anyone understand why its not working?

Any suggestions?

Edited to say: on the program that you use to upload your pics (came with the camera) and use the video thing, i can see an image, you can see me moving and everything, just dont understand why it doesnt work on MSN and Yahoo.

    Go to www.webcamxp.com and download that. It's a pretty good program, and people can view your camera by just going to an url :)

    My webcam doesn't work on yahoo or msn if I have the initial programme opened. Could that be your problem?

    For a start, which make and model is it. Look through the instructions for the makers/importers website, then look there for driver/software updates and troubleshooting FAQ's. Oh, and is it working properly as a camera, and allowing you to download the pics to your PC?
