webcam for Windows 98 /XP

  graham12 16:26 10 Sep 2006

Have a small problem I am using windows xp and my friend is using windows 98, I have sent her the link to my web cam but after she has clicked on the link nothing shows, is there something she would need to download before she can see me or would this not be because.

Using what programs ?

not to sure what you mean by that

Are you using MS Messenger, for instance?

You can't just connect a web cam to your computer - you need to run something to transmit your images, and she needs to run somthing to look at them.

*but not sure about my friend*

Ask her then.

*...after she has clicked on the link nothing shows*

Which link are we talking about? - The invitation to view link?

Make sure you both have the latest version of MS Messenger.

Are you both on broadband - if not a webcam is pretty dire.

You should both use Netmeeting
