Hi
I have just purchsed a webcam and mic and am trying to converse with a friend. He has the same and we are using messenger. We have video pictures okay but neither of us can hear each other. We have both run the audio/video wizard and everything is okay. We have also checked our audio panels and again everything is okay.

Any help apreciated.

Your issue usually happens if your Quality of Service (QoS) Packet
>Scheduler is turned on. In this case, I recommend that you clear the Qos
>Packet Scheduler check box. Here are the steps:

I, and many others, have had the same problem.

I will be interested to hear if turning off QoS packet scheduler will remedy the problem.

This FAQ page might be worth looking at

Still not solved entirely. I have had both audio and webcam working together on one occasion, but not now. Followed M/S ADVICE re QOS & firewall, did not make any difference both NAT & XP. It seems to be hit and miss, mostly miss.

Any further advice welcome

I have had the same problem for some time now and can't get it to work at all. So I decided to look for an alternative to Messenger and came up with a good online telephone service. Free if talking on the internet but charged if you go onto landline to call a landline phone.
