Problems with Logitech webcam and XP

Postby » Tue, 02 Dec 2003 23:44:29 GMT

Can anyone help here. I have a Logitech QuickCam Home 
configured to my XP system. I made a quick video email, 
compressed it via the Windows Media 9 encoder and posted 
it to my parents. I am on my parents pc now (Window 98 v2)
and the file arrives opened (i.e. not as an .exe file) as 
a Windows Media file but when I click on it only the 
sound plays - there is no video.
As a reference, my XP system is new and I had to contact 
Logitech to get my QuickCam to work on it - by 
downloading their latest software and crucially, 
downloading Windows Media 9 encoder which at last allowed 
me to compress video files.
Any help gratefully received.

1.Logitech webcam microphone problem

I am running Pentium 4 with XP Pro (SP 2) and have installed a Logitech 
webcam with built in microphone.  Using the Logitech software and using MS 
Sound Recorder the microphone is receiving sound and can play it back but 
when I try to have a webcam with sound session on Live Messanger no sound is 
heard at the other end. 
If I use the headset plugged into the mother board (on board sound) sound is 
transmitted. Have run through the Logitech help and have arrived at the 
option to remove the software for my MS wireless multimedia keyboard. 

As I do not have another keyboard I would not want to do this. 

Any help would be appreciated.

2.Messenger 6.1 & Logitech Quickcam webcam problems

I'm running windows xp pro, athlon 750 t-bird, 896mb ram, ATI Rage vid card
with Logitech Quickcam Messenger.

Seems that everytime I try to either start a webcam conversation or change
webcam settings in Messenger, the entire Messenger program freezes up.  I
can't even kill the process, and must to a hard reset to clear the "not
responding" messenger window.

I have done all the updates for the Logitech Quickcam software, Ati Rage Vid
drivers and all the windows updates for win xp pro.

Any help would be good.   i'm thinking it might just be the Video card.



3.Logitech Webcam problem with relaying pictures...

What advice is there for configuring   successful relay of webcam pictures. 

I am having problems with Yahoo Messenger & BT Communicator when it comes to 
sending my webcam pictures to my friends as they cannot retrieve to see them. 
  There may be conflicts with a firewall or it could be something else that I 
may be able  to alter to enable my pictures to be received.

Can someone give me advice on this?

Thanks in advance for any.

4.Logitech Webcam Pro 4000 being recognized as "USB Device", cannot install drivers XP SP2

I have an ASUS P4S800 motherboard with XP Pro Service Pack 2.  I have
tried to connect a new Webcam Pro 4000 repeatedly with no success.

It is not like other devices that are detected as <name of device>,
but is only recognized as "USB Device", followed by "USB Audio

When XP tries to find a driver for it, XP of course fails.

I have tried a few other devices that I happen to have.  They all work
just fine.
I have tried:
- MS Sidewinder Pro Joystick
- AIPTek Thumb Disk (forget the exact name, but one of those solid
state disk things :-))
- Bluetooth USB dongle (this is the one I expected NOT to work :-))
- ActiveSync Hotsync cable to my Ipaq 1945

The retail store has replaced the Webcam so I dont think that the unit
is at fault.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much in advance,


5.MSN 7.5 webcam problem in XP (webcam in use, but isnt)


(sorry for multi-posting in two messenger newsgroups, but discovered that 
this newsgroup is covering XP-issues)

i bought a (cheap) webcam 2 weeks ago. It works with other software (like
photoshop), and also with a simple videorecording application that came with
the cam.

The problem that MSN thinks my cam is in use, and refuses to select the cam.
Sometimes MSN crashes when i go to the config-dialog.

I searched this newsgroup, and tried everything. I discovered that the cam
does work in Windows messenger (i can at least select the cam and see video 
in the config dialog), so there must be something wrong with MSN.

Can somebody help me out? I bought the webcam to videochat with MSN..

Thanks in advance!
