No sound on MSN Messanger

  Canine 21:34 09 Apr 2004

I and my daughter have installed MSN messager and two identical creative webcams on our two computers using Windows XP. We are able to transmit video but no sound. We have spent half a day adjusting settings etc. but no efect. Our microphones and headphones work fine on other applications. We have tried reloading the MSN software. Any ideas or similar experience? Are there any other progrmmes I could try?

What version are you using? The latest is 6.1, you can download it now.

You could also try a programme which is very similar in lots of ways to MSN Messenger.

This is an "old" problem encountered by many on this forum, and it seems Microsoft have not resolved it. Curiously, older versions of Messenger did work.

I contacted MS in the past, and their suggestions did not help.

Another alternative that works is Yahoo messenger.

I, along with a friend have the same problem. I use Yahoo Messenger click here and this works no problem at all, voice and video.

Just thought I'd let you know. Tried eyeball chat and working well so far, video and sound. Skype for sound seems just to be for sound at present. Will try Yahoo if I need it. Thanks to all :-}
