Webcam issue - Yahoo Messenger

This is a strange, oddball problem, but somebody may have an answer.  I have 
a new cellphone (dumb phone) that also can work as a webcam.  So I connect 
it to my laptop, the drivers install, and everything looks ok.  But when I 
try to use it in Yahoo Messenger - it only partly works.

When I go into Preferences, Video and voice, and then open Video and Voice 
Setup, I can select the new cam, and it comes up fine.  It shows me the 
picture.

But when I actually go to open the webcam for broadcast, it doesn't work - 
just a black window where the picture should be.

So apparently the drivers are functioning, and part of YM sees the camera, 
but the other part doesn't.

This is the same on version 10 of YM under XP, and v11.5 of YM under Win 7 
x64 - exactly the same behavior.

Any ideas?

Security issue with MSN messenger
Hi! I live in europe. When i try to transfere a file or have a text-chat or video conference in MSN Messenger or Windows Messenger to my neigbour across the street connected to the same ISP I see some scary result from my network monitor.

I used netstat i Windows XP. Then i used a tool called Netlimiter and found out that netstat lies about the connections i have established on my computer. I found ...

Netbook webcam issue
Hi all. I am running Suse 11.1. Gnome on a Samsung NC10 netbook. I have read around the web that its Namuga 1.3M webcam should be recognized out of the box, but I have some problems. In fact, neither through Cheese nor through F-Spot I manage too see anything, but installing lucview and running the "luvcview -f yuv" command (another suggestion I found wandering in the web) I can see my tired face..... So, why is Suse seeing my webcam with some tools and not with some else? Running the command "dmesg | grep video" I get: Code: -------------------- pci...

Issue. Major issue.
Name: Rather Perturbed Email: jordodotisatgmaildotcom Product: Firefox Summary: Issue. Major issue. Comments: Here's the deal: Every time I use Firefox (after the upgrade to 3), it uses 100% if my CPU. I never had issues before, and was always impressed with previous incarnations. Now I feel I have been cheated by upgrading. Videos do not stream, pages take forever to load, and it just all around makes me angry every time I use it. I have a 2.2 Ghz processor, and over 1 Gig of RAM. This is not a hardware issue. I want to continue to use Firefox. It was always excellent b...

The webcam also works on other IM applications like Yahoo and NetMeeting. I'm not behing a router/NAT/ICS or any of the other stuff MSN like to blame. I simply run Zone Alarm on high settings, although I know this isn't the ...

Hp built in webcam issue
Well I recently installed Opensuse 11.1 KDE environment and well...now my built in webcam doesn't work. It used to work on my previous distros such as linux mint, ubuntu, kubuntu etc but it doesn't work on suse for reasons I don't know. I heard it may be due to me having to download certain drivers but all the drivers I was told about was for the version 11.0 and it won't install. On top of that I really have no idea on what driver I do need. I am new to the Opensuse distro so I don't know that much about it. I have cheese installed but whenever I start it I just ...

AOL Instant Messenger Issues?
