webcam speed on yahoo messenger

Why do I only get 3 frames per second on my 2m broadband connection when talking to my brother in Canada whilst he gets 10 frames per second on his? I have a Logitech quick cam express.Can any webcam reach 30 frames per second on Yahoo?

Normally the software you use with a webcam provides the means to adjust the frames rate.

But 15fps is usually about the best that can be had with dialup, although I've not tried mine with broadband yet.

I had similar.

Click pause and wait for a minute.. then click resume.

Seems ok now!

Do you mean that the video from him to you is 3fps and your video to him is 10fps?

What speed is his internet connection?

Remember that 2048kbps referes to the download speed only, not upload. You only get 256kbps upload.
