Webcam problems

  jamescapie 21:15 18 Apr 2009

I am a regular user of windows live messenger and sometimes use my webcam to have a webcam to webcam chat with friends etc until recently my webcam would not work with a contact. I would invite them to start viewing, they would click "accept" it would load and then just go off.

I've tried using it with other contacts and it works perfectly first time and hers works with all her other contacts, I can see her's no bother. So I bought a new webcam but the problem still persists. Both our cams work with everyone else and mine only doesn't work with her.

I really don't know why it would do that so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance :) James Capie

Only guessing, but perhaps at 'her' end she has somehow blocked your input? Get her to check her Security settings, possibly Firewall?

you might find that you both need to be using the same version of windows live messenger
